"On this album the listener will discover creative jazz, Brazilian samba, acoustic Japanese heavy metal, blues guitar riffs, prog-rock, ballads, Indian sitar/twang sounds, guitar pedal effects, Balkan rhythms, as well as exotic meters such as 15/16... it is recommended that the audience listen without categorizing the music!"

"Sharp Three Zero Cool... thrilling adventures!"
-- Jazz Journals Association
"There is a great explosion of gear-work on 'Boom!' The pedal effects, the rhythms and the bass lines forge what can only be called 'techno-prog.' This song—a Goh composition—is the love child of King Crimson and the Chemical Brothers. In the midst of all that, Chuck finds the groove and anchors the movement of Kai's thunderous bass-work."
