The Press About " A Sophisticated Face " :

-"Taking 'A.S.F.' on its own terms, then , the record is brilliant, possibly some of the most imaginative music i've heard!"
(Tone cluster # 74 , Dec.1999)

-"A.S.F. arguably stands as one of the best contemporary music releases of 1999. "
(D.Lynch , All music guide)

-"Blast are clearly a band dedicated to smashing down barriers and trying out new ideas. Wich is as it should be."
(Audion, Jan. 2000)

-"Les composition sont d'une finesse absolue, cachant leur complexité par une maitrise exemplaire des sons et des instruments. Superbe!"
(Opposition De Phase, 2000)

-"If one can appreciate the extremes of precision and complexity, then this is the real thing.....some of the most amazing & completely insane chamber rock of the day."
(Exposé, 2000)

-"Difficult arrangements abound as the complex structure of each piece evolves and unwinds. Intense and extreme."
(Record collector, Jan. 2000)

-" Daar sta je dan met je twee oren en je weet er gaat iets gebeuren, maar je doet er niets aan. Je geniet ervan. Dan volgt de bevrijdende knal. Blast!"
(H. Prenger, Opscene, March 2000)

-"Samen neemt het tiental u via de minst doorgrondelijke wegen mee naar het land der immer wisselende ritmes van de gestructureerde chaos die overheerst wordt door knotsgekke blazerspassages en onvoorspelbare percussie en strijkersuitspattingen. Proficiat en doe zo verder!"
(Stage nr.55, Dec. 1999)

-"Blast maakt duister in zichzelf rondwentelende muziek, geknipt als soundtrack over graviteitsputten en zwarte gaten."
(de Volkskrant, March 2000)
