“Thus, Slowtide already shows that the city is not unfairly part of the major project ‘Ruhr 2010. Cultural Capital of Europe'”
 Intro.de

“Wide, beautifully staged pop songs that do not need to shy away from comparison with similar 16:9 productions from the United Kingdom and sound like anything but the small room in which they were allegedly recorded.”
