"...C.O.L.D is best enjoyed as an exercise in the casual brilliance of a rapper as rhymer and pop enthusiast. The vocals are often just autotuned flow experiments, but at their best these verses exhibit the weightless exhilaration of a one comfortable with his place on rap’s metaphorical throne."
"The quality of the prose is top-notch, the narratives and their locations are vivid and engaging. This anthology stands out because of its unique approach to crime and punishment, and its intense focus on the sociological aspects of crime in one of the world’s largest, fastest growing and most complex regions."
"BrymO runs the risk of being condescending, but he avoids that ditch by constantly trying his best to remain in the foreground of the songs, even up to the point of self-implication. There’s a palpable reliance on intuition in his lyrics, rather than the pummeling stoicism that makes it hard to digest typically preachy songs."
"The novel’s strongest undercurrent is its deft portrayal of racial tensions and persecution. Zélie’s experiences of genocide, prejudice and structural inequalities draw vivid parallels with our world, without allowing a didactic message to dominate."
"Sun-El managed to create different moods both sonically and through the vocalists he featured. And he managed to blend electro with South African house to create an album that can be enjoyed by locals and has great potential to be exported, which, according to the title, is one of his biggest goals."
"The Harvesters has a real air of threatening austerity about it, enhanced by an excellent musical score, courtesy of Evgueni Galperine... But, the monolithic nature of the lead characters and the addition of a homosexual sub-theme to a plot which was already heavily steeped in religion, prevents the film from fulfilling its potential to some extent, though not Etienne Kallos from showcasing his promising directorial prowess."
