A few of the reviews on Cassius Lambert’s music:

“Cassius Lambert with orchestra creates twice as large and comprehensive sound as the number of instruments… Nevertheless, I would like to say that Pelle Cassius Lambert Lindsjö, his full name, composes, arranges and performs art music. If not today’s art music, then tomorrow’s….” / Bengt Eriksson at Ystad Allehanda

“Cassius Lambert is a bassist like Thundercat. The musical starting point is hip hop, funk and fusion jazz with many freedoms. The similarities are many. However, the most striking similarity is the ability to keep an eye on some complicated events where recognisability is allowed to prevail with the unknown.”/Niels Overgård at JazzNyt

“This is music that can not fail, music to return to for new influence pirouettes, with earthy cotton and rough åkerlin. How can you be so musically talented at such young years?” / Zandersson at Universum noll

“An impressive creative process embodied in an unusual individual music.” / Andreas Lagercrantz at Lira Musikmagasin

“Music that creates swallows” / Tobias Magnusson at Fria tidningen

“Orangeri is one of the most impressive debut I’ve heard from this country in a very long time.” /Ola Elleström at Hymn.se

“If you think of the visions presented on this EP, so will this south boy promise us many decades of fantastic music – that I’m sure of.” /Sanjin Dumisic at Alltformusik.se

“Yes, he shines! A very, very promising talent, that is not even twenty years old.” Bengt Eriksson at Ystad Allehanda, Kristanstandsbladet and Trelleborgsallehanda.

“Amazing. Nothing else. Amazing.”/Jan Erik Zandersson at Universumsnoll.com

“He is not even twenty years old. Impressive. This sounds so mature and extremely tight.”/Timo Kangas at Lira
