« Surprises, evocative harmonic and melodic choices, and rhythmic complexities… Vak achieves them all quite convincingly and in a most enjoyable manner on Budo. No fan of progressive rock or avant-prog should leave this release behind. » - Can This Even Be Called Music? (US)

«The album 'Aedividea' presented itself splendidly, but 'Budo' is even more interesting, more mature, more thoughtful and consistent.» - Esensja (Poland)

« VAK have a very powerful, virtuoso, solid and playful version of the Zeuhl on offer [...] Zeuhl freaks should definitely not miss Budo! » - BabyBleue Seinten (Germany)
