All About Jazz.com:
“This is a hugely enjoyable recording full of visceral power, verve and no shortage of soul. It marks BSDnB as an original contemporary voice with an utterly progressive approach to making music. How BSDnB rehearse – or where it get gigs – is anybody’s guess, but any promoter with a fat wallet and 27 chairs shouldn’t think twice”

Aarhus Stifttidende (Denmark):
“BSD+B swinger først og fremmest vildt kompetent samtidig med, at de formår at forny bigband genren. Fusionen af vidt forskellige elementer – metal, elektronisk, pop og (selvfølgelig) jazz – lykkes sjædent så overbevisende og underholdende som det sker her”

JazzNyt.com (Denmark):
“BSD+D har med denne plade lavet en værdig studieopfølger til liveforgængeren. Pladen vækker lysten til, at man kan få lov til at begrave sig i dem ved en koncert”

Jazznytt (Norway):
“Generelt kan storbandmusikk tendere mod en å ha en viss fallhøyde dersom repertoaret drister seg for langt ut på pop-planken, men med “Asa Nisi Masa” evner BSD+B å finne en middelvei som står støtt på bakke og i undergrunn”

Jazzrytmit (Finland):
“Ana Nisi Masa is livingly wild, full of energetic presenting of youth. It’s everything else that we understand as big band music. It’s an amazingly versatile entirety of a big orchestra playing with different genres. It has a strong electrical charge which is nicely balanced by the singers warm melodies”
