  • incredible to hear and see her perform live, not one to forget
  • This is sooooo cool. Not sure if I'd be able to appreciate it as much without having played the cello for years, but this is just unreal
  • "Two To Your Right, Five To Your Left" is absolutely ferocious.
  • I`ve been going to live gigs for 45 years but I have never witnessed such a visceral performer. She is a phenomenon!
  • Noisy Love Songs is a masterpiece.
  • I don't know too many artists form Tzadik, but she is great !!!
  • chills all over.
  • Man seriously, what the fuck. I love Ghil and I can't ever explain why. The tension throughout this record is scary and exciting at the same time. Positive or negative I don't know. For as long as I will be able to listen to this album I won't need to get drunk or high or whatever, that thing sodomizes my neurons and yet they're asking for more.
  • Her solo cello record Ghil from 2013 is also damn incredible. Okkyung really created her very own language on the cello.
  • Noisy Love Songs is amazing! [4]
