(…) Another aesthetic to the record definitely worth mentioning is the attractive cover art – which on the Toronto jazz scene right now is surprisingly hard to come by. Credited to Yesim Tosuner of Backyard Design, the artwork may seem familiar, sharing the same concept used by Andrew Downing and Lina Allemano on recent releases. Altogether a fantastic example of a great unifying concept and calculated simplicity, working alongside the music, making it a pleasure for fans to pick up the physical record. There’s nothing that spoils great tunes and fantastic playing like an awful album cover, and it’s great to see that View is not one of those.(…)

– James Strecker, ON THE ARTS, 2009
(…) there is an aesthetic that emerges all of a piece in this album. Consider the drawings, the old-style type-face, the choice of songs, and their words in translation. Together with the music, they form a lovely whole that nourished my sagging spirit and added richness to my day.
