"3 1/2 stars
From the first cymbal splash to the last echo of falling raindrops, Bohren will have your heart inside of a David Lynch late night bar, smoking heavily as you watch the foreign temptress on stage try to seduce you..The atmospherics are heavy and bleak on this bands sound, however this is contradicted by the minimalistic, lush playing of the trio, offering a musical paradox in a way, the beauty of darkness...The sound does become a little repetivive and gimmicky when the formula is blatantly repeated a few times throughout, but for the most part you will be too immersed in the noir feel of it all to even notice..Perfect for stormy nights of quiet desperation.."
A Journey you will never forget

"Morten Gass-piano, Christoph Closer-tenorsaxophon,Thorten Benning -schlagzeug and Robin Rodenberg-bass are German Bohren & der Club of Gore one of the MUST beautiful experience in Music and Fellings.When you try this i am sure you know what i really mean. Dark and Fantastic."
The art of slowing things down...

"*SlowingDownTheDayByPullingTheMusicalHandbrake*Bohren's music is like neon light:
It is extremely cold and somewhat 'artificial' (they use synthi-pads in the background) - But also warm in some really wicked way - this might be due to the saxophone-play of this guy named 'Christoph Clöser'......just like a dark urban sunrise..."
