“40 years later Christian Burchard and Embryo keep making some of the most original and adventurous world music fusion on the planet.” – All Music

“Thirty years on, Christian Burchard's Embryo, despite constant personnel changes, still managed to be one of the foremost bands to explore the outer reaches, where the musics of the world met one another and bled together. To call Embryo a "fusion band" is both accurate, and a gross understatement. There is no mixing together in the band's music, it is the creation of something completely new, multi-lingual, and transcultural they are after.” – Thom Jurek
