"Impressive" Dave Liebman
"A very gifted saxophonist" Joe Lovano
"Alex Terrier’s sound on saxophone – be it soprano, alto or tenor – is one to sear and move the soul" Matt Marshall, Jazz Inside NY, March 2010
"A lengthy original album of 11 energetic tunes that demonstrate a surprising sophistication. Terrier thrives in richly varied musical contexts, his compositions play with time and shifting tempos reminiscent of his influences, saxophonists Wayne Shorter, Bobby Watson and Ornette Coleman"
"Terrier, who plays soprano, alto and tenor saxophones, plays with great maturity and drive"
Richard Kamins, All About Jazz New York
"It's a very sophisticated, swinging kind of jazz and every song (all written by Terrier) has it's own personality, from the urbane, fluent beauty of "Tompkins Square" to the Ornette Coleman stream of consciousness of "The Dark Side Of Democracy." On top of that, Terrier's soprano sax is very distinctive, in a good---read, lyrical---kind of way. Roundtrip is solid from beginning to end"
Jazz Life (Japan)
"An album with so much on the ball it has to make you jealous even if you don’t play sax, this set of all originals is an accomplished work that delivers the goods so mightily you forget that he has a long road ahead of him yet. Certainly a young lion to add to your play list, he plays nu mainstream with a surety that comes with having nothing to prove and just letting the blowing flow. Hot stuff and a great new find"
