CrossRadar - "Once ‘Last Thing for Summer’ has established itself, the band’s sound begins to clarify – a heady techno beat that thunders along as a firm foundation, while atmospheric synths and fizzy guitars provide some enthusiastic instrumentation. ‘A Shape In Mind’ allows time for the track to really breathe and then the vocals stand out, while ‘True Love’ rolls out some epic glissandos that create a true depth of atmosphere.

Stereo 03 - "Carrier 21 komt uit Antwerpen en staat garant voor bakken okselfrisse fun. Het trio komt splinternieuwe tunes spelen uit hun nieuwe album 'In The Cloud'. Single 'One Step Ahead' doet het beste vermoeden door een flinke scheut disco toe te voegen aan de electropop waar Carrier 21 ondertussen zijn handelsmerk van heeft gemaakt."
