"Deleyaman claim The Stranglers, Joy Division, Magazine and Wire among their influences, not that you'll hear any of that on this remarkable debut. Instead, there is a rich spirituality inspired by Armenian mystical chants, and the baroque stylings of Handel and Bach; none of which sounds very appealing on paper. In the flesh though, it‚s like entering a time warp and emerging at a time when true alternative music was being shaped in the hands of Transglobal Underground, Dead Can Dance and Cocteau Twins. As a result "00/1"‚ refines a template imbuing it with a depth and beauty matched only by recent efforts from Natacha Atlas. Not that they limit themselves to purely Eastern stylings; Almast‚ adds a rich layer of pastoral folk in The Wicker Man tradition ˆ bringing the welcome memory of Britt Ekland dancing naked in her bedroom. Irresistible." -Michael Ornadet, LOGO Magazine U.K.

...few excerpts from french reviews of 00/1...

Alyz Tale, Elegy magazine : "...La musique de Deleyaman, divinement atmosphérique, transporte l’auditeur dans des contrées lointaines et éthérées, orientales et spirituelles..."

Elysia, Dark spirit in a candle "…Il y a dans Deleyaman un esprit musical proche de celui de Peter Gabriel composant 'La dernière tentation du christ', proche de Goran Bregovic - une ouverture sur le monde qui germe, se transforme, mûrit et s'épanouit dans l' Art …"

Sheer Khan, Guts of Darkness "…Très éthérée, la musique de Deleyaman n’en demeure pas moins intense, émouvante, la profondeur des harmonies et la beauté des mélodies, si épurées soient elles, hissant l’œuvre bien au délà du simple atmosphérique..."

Pjh, Le Fantastique "…Deleyaman sait trouver les sons et les rythmes essentiels et parvient à suspendre le temps. Voyage spirituel aux frontières de l'Occident et de l'Orient, Second est véritablement l'un des disques de l'année…"

Yannick Blay, D-Side magazine "… le sombre mysticisme de ces treize nouveaux morceaux convaincra le plus intégriste des fans du groupe australo-anglais Dead Can Dance. En effet rares sont ceux qui savent évoluer avec autant de personnalité et de talent dans ces ambiances maintes fois rabâchées…"

Patricia Bussy, Openmag "…Tout en gardant un enracinement musical traditionnel dans cet album, notamment pour les chants, qui s'inspirent dans leur forme de la poésie arménienne des achough (troubadours), la musique de Deleyaman est avant tout contemporaine…"
