Album Hilarious Experts was album of the year 2019 in Slovenia announced at the improvised music webzine Centralala

Hilarious Experts je v tem oziru precizno kuriran. Vsi trije tako rekoč domači, pa vendar svetovni glasbeniki nas skozi štiri skladbe od fiksnih in jasnih glasbenih idej popeljejo k bolj abstraktnim. Elementi v kompozicijah se spreminjajo, tako melodično kot v dinamiki in gostoti igranja, pa tudi z rabo različnih edinstvenih zvokov objektov in prepariranih inštrumentov. Album je prerez razvoja glasbene misli posameznikov, obenem pa tudi interakcije in komunikacije med njimi. Ravno ta komunikacija in prostor v skladbah pa omogočata, da glasbeniki prek improvizacije sproti in kolektivno komponirajo v zapečatenem trenutku, ki ga posledično lahko slišimo na Hilarious Experts.” Jan Kopač – recenzija za Radio Študent
