Wonderful recording although performed by just one guitar…
One of the best hi-fi audiophile recording that everyone should own.
GM2000 magazine, July 2007
The timeless album that you can listen to anytime…Through his classical guitar playing Hucky takes us to a new frontier that we have never been before.
Hi-fi Stereo magazine, January 2003
This album is a truly magnificent reference recording of classical guitar playing! (I bought CD and LP - the sound from LP was much better). Audiophile Magazine, 2017
The Best of the Best for anyone who loves Asian sounding albums. Performed by one of the world’s superb guitarists…sound quality is clear and excellent…Hucky’s performance is top class. GM2000 Magazine, June 2003
THIS IS the finest guitar recording I've ever heard...
And the quality of the sound recording is even better than Michael Newman's solo guitar recorded by Sheffield Lab. AUDIOPHILE Magazine, December 2015 … read more reviews

The good recording makes this album consistent and balanced with excellent sound quality across all tracks. You can hear excellent deep bass tones as best as can be achieved from listening to an LP. Audiophile Magazine (2017)
Although there is only two people playing, the music in the whole album has a greater feel. the two musician intended to make it to sound more like an orchestra or sitting in a cathedral, to create an interesting ‘landscape of sounds’. The Bangkok Post (05 January, 2001)
Hucky really shows of his chops on the Thai song I-sarn. Meanwhile, Harvey, who seems to be able to blow, bow, pluck and beat a tune on anything remotely resembling an instrument, provided a dazzling variety of sound and melodies in accompanying his partner. The DVD is a must for fans of Hucky’s music. • John Clewley -

… a sumptuous experience, full of period instruments and graceful melodies and beautiful guitar work. Perfect for Sunday afternoon and relaxing and simply enjoying. Very ethnic, in one sense, and yet somehow contemporary - a perfect set of contradictions.
The Bangkok Post (12 April, 2002)
Off Beat Siam is an ambitious album; the styles of music played in the songs range from traditional to jazz-funk, jazz to hip-hop and salsa. Khun-In’s ranat features throughout, taking the lead, accompanying or just trilling in the background. …. an amazing range of styles to play on one album…..
John Clewley - The Bangkok Post (06 June, 2008)
The two CDs cover a wide range of styles, from khaen instrumentals to funky Lam Phu Thai songs. There are many outstanding tracks and I particularly liked the Long Lar farewell song, sung so beautifully by Mukda Songserm, Chalard's exceptional vocals on Lam Tang Yoo Uai Porn Pi Mai, all the Phu Thai songs and, of course, the sublime solos and general trickery of master khaen player Sombat Simlar.
