- Bjørn Berge is a whole orchestra alone, and now he has found the right balance between raw and brutal and more subdued and restrained, Øyvind Rønning wrote in Dagbladet about Berge's concert at Notodden Blues Festival.

'' Bjorn Berge is an acoustic genius. The Norwegian singer can move mountains with his acoustic guitars, he can outplay the hardest metalheads and raise an enormous amount of energy. His repertoire ranges from his own powerful songs to smashing cover versions, which are much more than standard versions of old hits thanks to Berge's brutish voice and extremely dynamic guitar technique. Although this statement is only partially true: Despite all this, Berge's music is always catchy and soulful. His concerts are definitely THE acoustic guitar event of this decade. " (Badlands)
