"Sound Liberation display a level of multi-instrumental virtuosity and imagination that makes middleweight prog acts seem positively pedestrian by comparison. It's not everyone's cup of tea for sure but for the open-minded muso, there's weeks and weeks of musical nourishment to feast upon in these thirteen tracks." - Jodi Mullen, This is Not A Scene 2012

"..this is some startlingly original music. I am very encouraged when I hear music like this."

". "Sound Liberation display a level of multi-instrumental virtuosity and imagination that makes middleweight prog acts seem positively pedestrian by comparison. It's not everyone's cup of tea for sure but for the open-minded muso, there's weeks and weeks of musical nourishment to feast upon in these thirteen tracks."

- John Ephland, Downbeat, Nov. 2010

"Barring the obvious exceptions, much of 21st century composition appears to be thinning in significance, but this might be about to change. Gene Pritsker is one of a very spare handful of composers effecting this change, and evidence of this is found in the Varieties of Religious Experiences Suite, a towering instrumental extraction from his opera of the same name."

- Raul d'Gama Rose, All About Jazz, June 2010

"Sound Liberation are afraid of nothing, mixing rhythm and genre to the point where the listener simply gives up on labels and enjoys the ride!....grab this indie gem now!"

- RootdownFM.com

"VRE Suite is one of the more unusual works-performances I've heard in some time. It will no doubt appeal to those who look for rock that moves deeply into the "serious" music category.

- Grego Applegate Edwards, Gapplegate Guitar & Bass Blog, Aug. 2010

Two release shows for the VRE Suite: At Cornelia Street Cafe, presented by 21st Century Schizoid and at DROM NYC
