"Hard to pin down stylistically, as the band does draw it's sound from a few different genres, the music contained here could best be described as being prog rock in nature, but with a certain jazz and avant-garde slant as well. The playing is tight and vibrant and coalesces perfectly, bringing out the densely layered textures and multi-faceted arrangements in all their sonic splendor." by Ryan Sparks at "Sea Of Tranquility" (USA) 

"Russian band Air Canda's self-titled instrumental debut is crammed full of lively rhythms and multi-faceted tunes. Air Canda is an exuberant album, which often surprises and seldom fails to excite. Air Canda are a four piece ensemble, and on the face of it, their music is in some way influenced by the UK jazz-rock movement of the 70s. Comparison with Ian Carr's Nucleus readily springs to mind. At other times, the rasping saxophone, insistent rhythms and mouth-watering combination of improvisation, jazz, psychedelia and funk, accompanied by plentiful amounts of guitar is redolent of UK band Lapis Lazuli. The breadth and depth of what is on offer amounts to so much more than jazz or fusion, or indeed jazz-rock. The eight compositions sprawl energetically across a variety of genres and influences... The skill and energy of the musicians is perfectly portrayed in a release that has an abundance of exhilarating moments. The collective ability of the band and their empathy with each other is totally apparent, and is at the heart of Air Canda's successful sound. The band has perfected the art of creating a hugely expansive band sound that is complemented and cleverly embellished by many outstanding solos. The result is a compelling album that is inundated with unpredictable textures and complex rhythms. If you enjoy challenging music, flavoured by jazz, that excites and leaps effortlessly across genres, then I thoroughly recommend that you seek out this intoxicating album."
