●Falling into the blackness of the night with her songs. Only moonlight and us, and I find an entrance beyond the light. It is a land of love, there is no suffering nor sadness. It is fine because I am OK without tomorrow. Yoriko Ichinomiya's music is a forbidden fruit, and it is meant to be eaten midnight. I suggest you listen to her sing when you have some difficulty in your life. After crying all night through, and when you are just about to give up, a tender morning light will be at your back, whispering: "You can do it" - Taro Hakase (Violinist) ●You can rarely find this kind of music in Japanese music scene. For whisper-voice lovers, this album will be surely go down iin a history as a masterpiece. - Yukio Iwata (Music Writer) / J-WAVE "Sapporo Beer OTOAJITO"
●My heart is taken, my body is shaken, shuddering. I feel electric running through my body. Tears running, heart beating faster, I feel joy, sadness, despair and happiness. Sometimes it is calm as an ocean with no wind, sometimes it rages as a storm. Yoriko Ichinomiya's music makes my body react, responding as being in love.The reason is because she put all the pure and natural core of human emotion - strength, weakness, pureness, sadness and so on, straight into her songs. Because of that, her music has never been fake, always has been real and it will stay the same. If anyone asks me what her music is, I would answer: it is something that moves the heart. - Hideaki Kataoka (Movie Director) ●Her whispering vocal merges with the listener’s heart, sometime as rain falls, sometimes as it is springing up from the bottom of the earth. Her world is shown in monotone, and at the end, the last jazzy-pop bonus track leaves a lingering finish. - CD Journal
●Under the enormous sky, she walks, runs, stops and sings. "Who are you?" "Where are you?" … A piece, another broken piece here and there, and a love ballad sharing a ray of light. It is not a kind of music you listen to while you are busy moving. All of her music is a masterpiece. - Tadashi Yabe (United Future Organization) ●What a downer sound, and her shuddering voice and her almost-tweeting vocal are so fragile. It is like dying-Rickie Lee Jones or depressed-Nanako Sato. Although, more than anything, her strong character stands out of all the usual music with atmosphere, and the production, which is wiped clean to the bare bones, sounds so cool. It is so scary, full of strong and weird charms that you can't stop listening to it. - Shinya Matsuyama (Music Writer) / CD Journal "Yoroshiku Aishu"
