'I did find myself spellbound, the pipes of Jacqueline van Bierk, a sultry temptress whose delicious voice reminds me of Siouxsie. Most of the numbers here would sound just fine coming out of the radio' -Bill Ribas NYRock.com 12/2002 'The crunch and grind of a hardcore metal band, the dark, moody feel of NIN and the sultry emotive vocals of Veruca Salt. A great disk with huge potential' David Goff/Indiego Music 08/2002 'If this band were a stock I would put a lot of money into it because they are going to take off' -Jason Smith, Fan 2003 'Renew' has enough pop hooks, instrumental flair and sinister underpinnings to seduce any unsuspecting modern rock listener' -Kevin M Mathews/ Power of Pop 07/2002 'Otto's Daughter provides listeners with music that is mysterious and slightly dangerous. Dark in nature without giving in to the gloom and doom feel.' -Gothicvixen.net 05/2002 'A righteous slap of cyber erotic pop-metal' -Ken McIntyre/The Sleezegrinder 04/2002 'Strong vocals and punchy tunes with strong rock attitude' - Pat Hawkes-Reed/Legendsmagazine 'A superb promising young act' -Rockmetalbands.com 04/2002 'Try this music on and you'll find rhythmic industrial stitches holding together throbbing bass gothic sleeves, colorful art rock pockets and collars, and numerous techno colors throughout the rest, particularly reflected from the singer's black leather pants.' - David Lilly for Nefariousmagazine 2002.
