reviewed by Travis Dow, July 2008:
its opening few notes, the album bursts out with a clear vision.
DuBerry is an artist with something to say and the skills to put
it across. It’s impossible not to be drawn into the message,
and amazing to realize how much emotional information can be gleaned
without lyrics to spell it out for us.¨
Willem from ‘Prog Resiste’, a Belgian magazine of Progressive
Rock, Issue 48 April 2007:
Room is a good instrumental album which invites you on a voyage,
exterior or interior and in time or space. An album which it is
good to let yourself be taken along with.¨
Records, October 2006:
overall sounds range from the almost Steve Reich like repetitive
guitar sounds of opening track Tribute to a much more prog rock
sounding version of the likes of The Future Sound of London, take
in a bit of seventies breezy jazz rock along the way and you end
up with a highly entertaining album.¨
