"Punctuated by vocals this is really an instrumental record, and shows the tremendous skills of all involved. The interplay between the trio is incredible, and the recordings are so sharp that nothing is missed." Squidco

"Depending on where from you're started, "Motel" ' s music could sound for you like if Ramones switched to complex avant-improvs music or like Japanese Ruins went to NY Downtown and decided to become punk band. Mixing NY punk aesthetics with Japanese avant-prog angular noisy brutality, PAK play really original music here - punk-rooted with guitar improvs,violin and trumpet and complex angular rhythmic constructions. From other hand, their sound isn't so radically brutal,as on many Yoshida's projects." Fan
