“Was passieren kann, wenn die Herangehensweise des Freejazz auf die Zugänglichkeit von Pop und eine an der bildenden Kunst geschulte Praxis treffen, dafür ist „Minus“ ein Fanal, eine regelrechte Markierung des Jahres 2018.“ – Spex
„Caustic, scratchy fire music“ – The Wire
„Glorious slabs of noise“ — Victor Schonfield
