« Circa 1999 is a strange album. Its author, Bernardo Devlin, is not much behind it. The cover of this object is silver, as a mirror, and the booklet contains colored pages, without any text. (…) Devlin is an inhabitant of frozen constellations, his eyes too opened for the night. The voice of this former element of Osso Exotico is somewhere between the shadowy romanticism of Scott Walker and the operatic tone of Peter Hammill (…)

It is not psychedelia, because the dream-like evasion is not allowed, but rather the shifting power from a strange ceremony of astral sado-masochism, in which the music – tomb pianos, feverous saxophones and electronics from the factory, abysses of percussion, funeral strings- determines the smaller gestures of mise-en-scène throught his infernal passion in the shape of a statue. »

Fernando Magalhães, Público, February 2004
