What the Press are saying:
"Emotion is given as much, if not more weight than precise musicianship. And in
doing so, they've made one of the best art-rock-cabaret records you haven't
heard this year."
"The main asset of Panic is the wonderful Yael Kraus...She has a strong, sexy
and romantic voice, but what dominates in her voice is her ability to sing with
a musical and textual intelligence and offer the listener the possibility to
truly believe in every bar and every note, every words and every emotion."
"In a perfect world Panic Ensemble will be the most successful band in the
world. Meanwhile they settle in a place of honor in the local Israeli Indie
scene, and boast a halo of rare quality and originality"
