"Orion Tango's second album, The Apple of No, operates in the same quadrant of telepathic rock-based improvisation that King Crimson and Can explored so expertly in the 70s. This is no backward-looking knock-off though. Tim Motzer's elasticated guitar playing works with a super tight, empathetic rhythm section through four full-on suites bristling with ecstatic interplay. Their capacity to quickly sift through abstract layers to suddenly hurtle into cathartic release over quick-fire grooves makes this album a thing of wonder." - Sid Smith, Prog magazine (UK)

"incomprehensible unity" - paul santoleri

"Tim Motzer, Barry Meehan and Jeremy Carlstedt are ORION TANGO and they've just put out a very fine album titled 'The Apple of No.' The recording features four lengthy improvisation-based rock pieces. These three have been playing together forever, so it's more like "real-time composition" with inventive, cohesive themes, grooves and melodic elements developed on the fly. I've seen these guys play live on several occasions. This is an excellent snapshot of what they're about. If you ever get a chance to see them, make sure you pursue it." - anil prasad, innerviews

"an unbelievable demonstration by three 'off the charts' talented musicians who were clearly in full musical mindmeld. Fantastic to witness!" - john thomas

"their new album is one of the few reasons why this world didn't end yet!" - avraham bank

"simply magic while it lasted." - geno thackera, all about jazz
