"This is a new Waste Land, a place where Busi Mhlongo sings lullabies to the ghost of Thurston Moore’s bloodied guitar and Jim Jarmusch’s Ghost Dog battles Johnny Mad Dog’s adolescent hounds of hell ... It’s a place where heroes – from Sam Nujoma, Chris Hani, Fidel Castro and the Dalai Lama to Leonard Cohen and Breyten Breytenbach – come unhinged, their singing severed from our history, their songs lost, or perhaps unsung by a nation splintering at the seams. ... Verkeerdevlei is for the beautiful ones not yet born, a generation that comes after the fact – after the rainbow, the deluge, the endless corruption, the mounting violence, the near-wilderness and the suicidal flood of disinformation that promises to drown us all." - Miles Keylock, Rolling Stone ****

"Die inhoud is opreg, by uitstek oorspronklik en bowenal verruklik mooi." - Pieter Redelinghuys, Die Burger *****

"If bulimic cityscapes and arteries clogged with poets and vagrants made love to the desolate veld, the bastard that clawed its way out would be Verkeerdevlei. ... Verkeerdevlei is undoubtedly one of this year’s most interesting local albums." - Max Barashenkov, Obrigado

"...’n verontrustigende kombinasie van musiek en digkuns." - Kayla Roux, Grocott's Mail
