The WIRE sagt " cannot help but be overwhelmed by the consistently high quality of the submissions. Together the three volumes add up to a comprehensive sampler of the seemingly infinite possibilties offered by contemporary guitar music. The set's sincere celebration of musicianship and imagination is hard to dismiss, and even harder to find elsewhere." (Joseph Stannard-The Compiler)
