Can This Even Be Called Music? What this album does, it does very well. The execution of this album is phenomenal, in terms of composition, arrangment, and performance. The airy female vocals work well astride the bombastic organ riffs, angular guitar lines, and ethereal flute melodies, backed up by the computational rhythm section. I find this release sets the galactic gears in motion quite pleasurably. There is music in the spheres indeed. Favorite track: The Scientist's Wife.

Dillon Ethier Top-notch progressive rock featuring a female vocalist and flute. A modern twist on the classic Canterbury style with a delightfully jazzy flavor. Will likely please any fan of classic prog rock. Favorite track: The Scientist's Wife.

" A welcome comeback for one of the few outfits whose music truly feels timeless." Raffaella Berry - DPRP

"This is a quite stunning piece of work, which repays repeated listening, and grows in stature with each listen. I cannot commend it highly enough to those of you who like your music a little askew from the norm, but with virtuosity and inventiveness present in spades." John Simms - Skypilot.

"...their strongest album to date without question. I remember when Dave Stewart wrote music like this." Bill Gilham - Progarchives

Burning Shed describe Thieves' Kitchen as "a sophisticated mixture of the old and the new, as Mellotrons and Hammonds collide with powerful guitar riffs and unusual Canterbury prog harmonies fuse with art rock bite and ethereal folk-tinged songcraft."
