"After the Exhibition is the Wrong Object's most diverse and arguably strongest outing thus far."
–Dave Lynch, AllMusic
"A solid hour of brilliance, with some new discoveries and revelations awaiting the listener on every repeat play. Every song here is an adventure, but wherever they go melody reigns supreme, and there's always something interesting going on rhythmically."
–Peter Thelen, Expose
"While this is my introduction to the band’s music, I have to tell you I’m completely hooked with their sound and surreal beauty The Wrong Object comes up with."
–Zachary Nathanson, Music from the Other Side of the Room
"What the group does is consolidate Canterbury, fusion, prog, and those modes' antecedents—classical, neoclassical, old school avant-garde, jazz, etc.—into a heady braintrip brimming with odd scenes, skewed academic japery, burning spirits, baroque sentimentality, and, of course, pure creativity. It goes without saying that this is a top-notch production in all respects, from engineering staples to cerebral crenellations, and Wrong Object is certainly one of the bands keeping the high-water mark of intelligence in music alive."
–Mark S. Tucker, FAME
"Fans of the aforementioned R.I.O. genre, as well as jazz fans looking for something more forward thinking (with crazy-good blowing to boot), should not hesitate in buying a copy of this “Best of 2013” contender as soon as possible. With the release of Wrong Object’s latest offering, “After the Exhibition”, Michel Delville and Co (now a sextet) have managed to erase the need or, for that matter, the ability of the listening audience to pigeonhole them into any specific category or genre."
–Dan Burke, Jazz Inside (Page 78 of .pdf document)
"At once strikingly various – driving Led Bib-like roaring is intelligently interspersed with hypnotic, spacy music, heavy riffs jostle against ringingly joyous climaxes and tear-it-up hurtles – and cleverly programmed (Moerlen’s ingenious ‘Stammtisch’ providing an extraordinary climax to proceedings), this is an unequivocally enjoyable album from a full-throttle band at the top of its game."
–Chris Parker, London Jazz News
"The Wrong Object take the adventurous spirit of their original inspiration and forge their own unique and regularly breathtaking sonic vision. After The Exhibition is an album that restores my faith in progressive music."
–Roger Trenwith, Astounded by Sound
"Wow! What a new album, the best one I’ve heard yet from Belgian guitarist Michel Delville and his band. Intelligent and inventive jazz-rock that doesn’t stop at simply stringing flashy solos together."
"The Wrong Object’s After the Exhibition is an album which oscillates between the wild and the melancholy, between explosion and meditation. A wonderful musical journey."
–Peter Slaby, VOICE (Czek Republic)
"The Wrong Object’s After the Exhibition continues the trend they set with their first studio album (Stories from the Shed) to “put the eyebrows on” their brand of auditory Dadaism in a way that acknowledges their Zappaist roots without sacrificing authenticity or letting their jazz, rock, or avant-garde down."
–Curtis Smith, Progulator
"A very attractive synthesis of the elements of Canterbury prog-rock, jazz-rock and Nu-jazz resulting in a “wall of sound” painted from top to bottom with psychedelic colorful graffiti. Every single composition on this album conceals something new and interesting."
–Leonid Auskern, Jazz Square (Belarus)
"With its perfectly balanced running time, After the Exhibition is a true rollercoaster ride of dazzling musicianship coupled with sophisticated flair for melody that tempers and softens the bristling intensity of the album’s more electrifying parts. Highly recommended to everyone, After the Exhibition is an exercise in pure class, and will certainly grace many a “best of 2013” list."
–Raffaella Berry, Fire of Unknown Origin
"The Wrong Object is one of the gems of Belgian jazz, a band which has enriched the palette of the genre."
–’Jo Jo’ De Vries, Afterglow (The Netherlands)
"The Wrong Object’s latest release After the Exhibition has its own life, it's fierce, loud and aggressive, threatening the listener with a risky and elaborate fusion of sounds, styles, moods and genres, that go from Univers Zero (thanks to virtuoso keyboardist Antoine Guenet) to Frank Zappa with a touch of King Crimson, Canterbury Scene and classical references. 5 solid stars, being that anything less would be unfair for such a marvelous work."
–Ivan Melgar, Prog Archives (scroll to bottom of webpage)
"After The Exhibition is avant-jazz-rock and definitely not background music; to truly appreciate the empathic playing, the inventiveness and exuberance, After The Exhibition repays many replays. So far my album of the year."
"The Wrong Object returns with an expanded lineup — and a radically expanded sound palette, with bold electronic textures from new keyboardist Antoine Guenet and stunning harmonic complexities. When After the Exhibition is over, there is a curious, room-filling silence that just begs you to listen again."
–Nick DeRiso, Something Else Reviews
"With After the Exhibiton, The Wrong Object set themselves firmly at the top of the Euro-jazz-rock scene."
–Andreas Schiffmann, MusikReviews.de (Germany)
"After the Exhibition shows how the group is destined to become a classic band and trademark of its own."
–PsycheMusic (scroll to bottom of webpage)
"After the Exhibition proves that contemporary European jazz-rock can reach unprecedented levels of quality and innovate and invigorate the genre."
–Rock Times (Germany)
"A wonderful disc fulfilling every expectation."
–Francisco Macias, La Caja da Musica (Spain)
"After the Exhibition is as lively, intricate, vivid as anything else you've likely ever heard. You'll no doubt find The Wrong Object to be one of the most engaging acts still keeping avant-garde jazz alive."
–Jordan Blum, Sea of Tranquility
