–“Maillard can be considered as a pioneer regarding this combination of various genres[…](his) music brings out the best from his world and the Rock world[…]he has a lot to give to the music industry.”–Metal Express Radio
–“Groundbreaking! It is a truly unique and captivating style of music[…]an impressive new force in the world music scene that has received warm accolades from many well respected members of the musical community[…]I wish more new music was as original as this.“–Progressive Ears
–“The drums combined with electric guitar and the strong, often falsetto voice of Jean-Christophe Maillard deliver a universal message[…]a rhythmic sensibility that will rattle your ears and shake your brain[…]King Crimson gone tribal, or a more kinetic Peter Gabriel, or maybe a less frenetic System of a Down.”–Sea Of tranquility
–“A well-experienced musician[…]there’s no doubt that he deserves only respect for his author’s work and evident original views[…]could be a one of most original products released during the previous year.”–Rock Serbia
–“Mbutu’s music is strong and energetic with catchy melody lines. Recommended. “– Ectagon
–“... an excellent album to seek out for listeners of “World music” with a rock edge”–Proggnosis
–“The compositions get more and more fascinating as one adjusts to this rather unique stylistic expression[…]worthwhile investigating for liberal-minded followers of rock music that feel a variety of styles, moods and genres is a treat.” –Progressor
