‘’The lyrical ’Shadows’ brings a rhythmic flavor of Northeast Brazil, the Baião, that adds beautifully to the palette of colors and atmospheres of the album – pay attention to Joonas’ solo (bass), full of intent and personality.’’
– Chico Pinheiro, 2017 in the liner note of Lithium ‘’Red’’
‘’Tuuri used his plentiful solo space in a very mature way, respecting in a humble way the atmosphere of each song.’’
