Although the album rocks excitingly from track to track, the crowning moments come on the ultimate track, "Again and Sweetly," a sonic gem of sweeping expanse. While sounding utterly new, the musicians manage to improvise around myriad familiar songs that appear and disappear throughout; an agglomeration of sound that makes Sharks memorable long after the music dies. -- Raul D'Gama Rose, All About Jazz

 

Starting out in “Breakthrough/Zhu,” the instrumentation conjures up a jungle-like thickness akin to rhythmic tribal ceremony to open up a musical development, which includes mimicry of living creatures on an array of exotic and traditional acoustic instruments and electronics. -- Lynn Horton, Jazz Times
