"Lindha Kallerdahl has a remarkable span in her singing and it really shows on this tremendous solo album. Several songs are only vocals; sometimes she plays expressive piano and organ. A couple of jazz standards for example Body & Soul gets a new costume, mostly new songs by Lindha. She can sing soothing, the voice like pouring water, scatter and shout and, well anything in between. Jazz? Improvisation? Well Lindhamusic very impressive. All the way."
- PM JÖNSSON, Göteborgsposten
"Singer Lindha Kalleredahl´s music could be placed within the interesting zone between jazz and progressive and improvisation music. She has said that she sees herse11lf as part of a tradition. But as listener you feel that her verbal whirlwind only touch the known references. There is singing but also vocal artistry that touches, and in its own way, link the mist far fetched influences and moments of recognition. "Gold" is actually her first solo album, but the experience she has gained from the collaborations with Anna Lindahl and Sonic Youth amongst others, doesn't pass the ear unnoticed. She is strong, intense and generous. She really wants; it seems, to move the listener. No posing and restrained bullshit. In other words. Lindha Kallerdahl is for real." - Johannes Cornell
