"...makes you wonder what Crimso would be like if Oteri took over Belew's guitar chair - possibly re-invigorated!" FOUR THUMBS UP!
-Manny Lunch, Downtown Music Gallery NY
"Spiral Out is an extension of the improvisational outings that made acts like John McLaughlin's Mahavishnu Orchestra and Tony Williams Lifetime, King Crimson and even Frank Zappa the uniquely memorable experience that made musical history." "Whatever is in Willie Oteri's water, I think it's high time that it was poured into the two dimensional cesspool which is what some of the homogenized and pasteurized modern music industry has become today.
-Bruce Stringer, Music Street Journal
"I think Spiral Out is one of the best fusion discs to come along in years. Where is the follow-up?? Keep The Faith (in the Music)"
"Guitarist Oteri with King Crimson side men in a improvised rock/jazz outing, prog fans take note, the torch of interesting fusion lives on!"
