"Margaret Explosion's music is infinite, eternally elegant, and mystical.
Their esoteric wonder paints pictures in my head nonstop." - Frank DeBlase - Rochester City Newspaper
"One of the most original and unusual bands in Rochester; a five-piece ensemble exploring all sorts of musical dimensions
linked to free jazz, Third World melodies, exotic instrumentation and a spacey, enveloping sort of music.
The Explosion plays with a single-minded purpose and organic oneness that's most impressive." - Jack Garner - D&C

Rochester Democrat & Chronicle's Jeff Spevak says:
"Margaret Explosion's "Disappear" is a narcotic soundtrack, a sinuous improvisation on original impulses."

"Releasing music in a form that's generally used for quick-hit pop and rock songs is an interesting idea
for a band whose improvisational music is so whimsically ethereal. The group's snakey, sultry groove on these two cuts,
"Juggler" and "Purple Heart," features Peggi Fournier's melodic sax and could snake charm a Dada existentialist convention."
- Jeff Spevak, Rochester Democrat & Chronicle Both sides feature Jack Schaefer on bass clarinet, custom, letterpress artwork and black vinyl.
