Bol&SNah “So? Now?” :
„So? Now?“ ist ein aufregendes Album aus der Ecke des modernen Artrock-Prog geworden, welches mit rockiger Aggressivität wie nordischer Melancholie geschickt spielt. Eigenständig, herausfordernd, umschmeichelnd, prickelnd, alles zugleich, tolles Ding. Review in Babyblaue-Prog

” …Bol&Snah is a muiscal Frankenstein…..” Sound Magazine , Italy nov. 2013
“Numb, Number” is pretty much unclassifiable, its many strands and the personnel that deliver them making it a challenging offering. That it all actually works extremely well and makes absolute sense from start to finish is perhaps not quite such a surprise considering the respective pedigree of each of the musicians involved, but if this record is by all means the direct result of these forces working together, that result is ultimately much greater than the sum of its parts.”
“….a melting pot of untimely sound worlds, poetic texts and fearless, improvising character.”All about jazz (US), 2012
“Separately and together we´re dealing with some of Norway´s furthermost creative and searching musicians – musicians that couldn´t care less about genres and labels. That´s probably why most of the music they make turns out unique, exiting and cool.”

A solid sequel (…) although your expectations after listening to the Album are high, it is an experience in itself to see and hear an electronic trio mastering the subtle art of playing together like this.
Roald Helgheim, Dagsavisen
The Span in their Universe of Electronica is delightfully extensive, from the obsessive to the nearby transparent fragile.
Svein Andersen, Aftenposten Oslopuls
Bol will probably be placed in the category of Jazz, although rockers and others with an open mind become to find pleasure in this excursion in Music. With “Silver Sun” Bol simply has given us some of the most exciting Music there is in a loooong, loooong time.
Tor Hammerø, Nettpuls
“This jazz-poptronica trio from Trondheim have made a masterpiece with their second CD, a formula-defying journey up a river of humanity where heartbroken souls line the shore. 47 minutes of incandescent musical brilliance.”
