... first-class rated albums ...

... a benchmark in Austria ...

... Openess, fun for experimentation and the courage to change display the strengths of this Viennese band since ever ...

... Hardly any other Austrian band transferred her musical ideas so uncompromisingly, including all corresponding changes in style, like Novi Sad did. In the bands songs lyrical-narrative, dreamily half-accoustic songs meet pure rock and innovative folk-rock of the highest premier league ...

Novi Sad: Music For The Time After Rock'n'Roll Von Alfred Pranzl (Wienzer Zeitung)

Im Titelsong erschallt trotz sprachlicher Irreführung purer Rock. Andererseits schürfen die Songautoren Klaus Schuch und Evelyn Blumenau in ihrem Metier Folkrock wohlfeile, nachpfeifbare Lieder zu Tage. Ausnahmen bilden das orchestrale, frei fließende „Backyard Of Eden" und ein a-cappella-Mantra, das allein aus dem Wort „No!" besteht. „Blue" und „Lady Says" führen zurück zum typischen Novi Sad-Sound. Zum Hang nach Melodien, der den poppigen Folkrock des Wiener Quartetts prägt.

... from song to song and even within them a coming up of constantly unmixable mixes, often only in elements, but never mere elements or postmodern gags ...

... it is as one would permanently switch between TV-channels, but with slowly dissolving pictures. Despite all heterogeneity a basic mood spreads out in this musical labyrinth: melancholy, desire ...

F a l t e r


... thrilling colourful repertoire ...

K l e i n e   Z e i t u n g


... there aren’t too many groups playing music like this these days, but after hearing this one I could stand a few more ...

O p t i o n / U S A


... the return to intimate songs ...

... some immortal compositions ...

... dreaming starts here. really! ...

S k u g


... a wonderful atmospheric accoustic picture book,a musical diary of their tour through Romania and Bulgaria, incl. studio recordings, radio shows and live performances ...

F l e x   D i g e s t


... this music deserves a place of honour amongst the most extraordinary rock records ...

... hard to believe that this is an Austrian production ...

T i r o l e r   T a g e s z e i t u n g


... the discordant sound patterns are combined with harmonic melodies in a pleasing and inspiring way ...

... the obstinate music of NOVI SAD begins to form a circle around other artists ...

A u s t r i a   C r e a t i v


... the typical NOVI SAD songs between rock, folk and relaxing avantgarde with the impressive voice of Evelyn Blumenau could absolutely find a bigger audience ...

C h e l s e a   C h r o n i c l e


... charming, fake eccentric, nonchalant, devious, but thorough pop ...

A Z


... at first an irritating mixture of neo-rock, rock-jazz, wild poetry and straight heavy, abstract eccentricity and groove ...

... this is indeed a new Austrian sound, excellent and most exiting, fitting no category ...

... heavenly live music ...

V O R - M a g a z i n


... one of the most interesting independent productions of the last years ...

C o n c e r t o


... essentially more direct, more sensitive and more suggestive than usual. The folkrock approach of the predessing CD has found its urban continuation and further development ...

P l a n e t   M u s i c


... avantgardistic rock music with extraordinary lyrics ...

X - A c t


... the lyrics are super, the music is genially arranged ...

F l e x   D i g e s t


... a CD in the right warm mood ...
