AllMusic Review by

The fifth album by this Austrian quintet combines the catchy songwriting and slight Peter Gabriel vocal inflections of F.X. Groemmer with the whimsical playing of accordionist Jo Schultz. The highlights of this album are the Schulz instrumental numbers "Return of the Sqeezbox" and "Dance of the Balcans," but it is a solid and varied collection nevertheless. "I Wanna Go Home" is propelled by a country/Cajun beat; "Millions of Days" is something of a salute to Arthur Lyman with its offbeat marimba interlude; and "Walk Alone" is a fine example of American-influenced roots-rock. Fellow Austrian musician Matthias Loibner (Deishovida) plays hurdy-gurdy on several tracks, contributing another unique component to this recording.
