Review:

... Scottishness was a springboard for Martyn Bennett, a firm rock beneath his foot to launch himself elsewhere - he fused and galvanised and created new forms out of old ones - as a matter of course. He did what we have to do in our national life generally. Start out from our unique Scots soil - rich, moist mixture of Gaelic and Irish and Asian and Norse - and launch ourselves outwards. There's something fearless in the art of Martyn Bennett - confidence - faith - lacking in our intellectual and political arenas ... What's the point in having our artists - if we don't look to them for inspiration? Bennett was inspired by writing and many writers are, in turn, inspired by him. In his music there's a glimpse of a Scotland we can find in depth - His is a Scotland I'd like one day to wake up in. Chris Dolan, The Herald, Feb. 5, 2005
