"Compared to my original U.S. pressing of Eli, this... does a better job of delivering... With a full band behind her, the remastered wax offers more detrail and separation. Even better are the quiet parts, where a black noise floor and more full and vivid sound draw you in, especially when Nyro's sexy, soulful voice leavevs the speakers." Jeff Wilson, The Absolute Sound, April 2017, 5/5 Music, 3.5/5 Sonics
