80 % Exclaim
"A charming and classy return."

80 % The Guardian
"Tribute to Ndougo Dieng may delineate a new phase for this band in the studio, but the music on offer is satisfying; it's deeper and wider and the elements of joy are untouched by time. And make no mistake, it still slides down the spine toward the belly to create an almost irresistible temptation to dance."

80 % AllMusic
"Old-school Africa at its finest."

80 % The Observer (UK)
"Deep into their career, Dieng at times reveals the advanced stage of its players. The songs are taken a step slower, the rhumbas show a consideration for the pulse as well as the spaces between them, and the themes in some manner or another touch upon mortality."

75 % Pitchfork
"The songs are not fast ones, staying in a midtempo range, but each one carries a steady beat, leading gentle, swaying dances. It’s hypnotic, utterly relaxing, and a reminder that slowing down doesn’t have to mean giving up."

70 % PopMatters
