Press Quotes

“It is an artfully layered, contrapuntally, expressively and colourfully rich music that engulfs the listener from the very first track―a noise wave―and doesn't let you take a breath. There is something for everyone who listens to good music across all genres.” ― JAZZPORT

“Creaks is a tenacious record that will guide you through all the nooks and crannies of this adventure puzzle game. Hidden Orchestra―with Joe Acheson in the lead― sensitively edited all the extensive music material for the purposes of the soundtrack release. Since the aim wasn’t to send a sort of ‘a best of’ into the world, but to create a compact record that would offer the most comprehensive view of the game itself as possible. It is also thanks to this that the album fits perfectly into the discography of this collective.” ― MUSICSERVER
