“Rife is a great little find. It is music that really feels like it doesn’t care less about the trappings of modern day genre pigeonholing and is quite happy to go about its own way, following its own course, often exploding with possibility and energy without caring about such things as restraint or moody aesthetics.” - Richard Pinnell, The Watchful Ear.
