"Jazz album of the year" - Icelandic Music Awards 2006
"The recording combines many music influences—popular, world music, and electronica—into a distinctive mix that is equal parts musicianship and atmosphere. Pálsson and his quartet are clearly up to something (...) Don't let the CD cover of the saxophonist wearing a gas mask intimidate you; there's nothing toxic about Varp. It's a breath of fresh air."
- Mark F. Turner in All About Jazz
