    A tótok világszínvonalú progresszív rockot játszottak a 70-es évek elején. Legalább olyan jót, mint a The Nice, vagy az Emerson, Lake & Palmer, ha nem jobbat. Csak azért nem válhattak igazán ismertté, mert a vasfüggöny mögött éltek. (If I see the quality of the music of this extraordinary progressive band I must tell they were as good as The Nice, or Emerson, Lake & Palmer in the 1970s.

    Když mi bylo čtrnáct, jeden čas mi hrály Suita po tisíc a jednej noci a Piesne z kolovrátku snad každej den. I po těch pěti letech lze říct, že CM jsou jedna z nejlepších hudebních záležitostí, co znám.

    Koncert v Divadle Andreja Bagara bol neskutočne atmosferický. Jeden z najlepších koncertných zážitkov môjho života. Pripravujem aj recenziu. Best skladby boli "Ulica plna plaštov do dažda", "Mikrokozmos", "Concerto In D" ... vlastne všetky... a nezabudnem nikdy na legendárne "Esteeeee", v Suite Po Tisic A JEdnej Noci, ktoré akoby zázrakom kričali všetci naraz. Prídavok Hommega bol pre mňa očakávaný a veľmi potešil... Chýbal mi tam iba Dušan Hájek, ktorý je mojim bubeníckym idolom. Valihora bol ale tiež vynikajúci...

    to es_why : Možno že je najlepší ale už to nebude nikdy to pravé Collegium bez Dušana. Navyše Dušan mal svoj styl a bol neuveriteľne charizmatický a svojský (jeho legendárne prídavné Amati tomy a množstvo rôznych perkusii popripájanych k súprave). Aj napriek tomu že je Valihora dobrý, neobdivujem ho až tak ako Dušana Hájeka. Urobil chybu že sa na hudbu vykašlal.

    "Otvorí sa zimná brána, do ticha sa veža nakloní. Z múdrych zvonov spadnú rána ako hviezdy do jabloní. Prší z ranných hviezd, rosou chcem ťa viesť..."
