“...a group that takes an eclectic, progressive approach to a variety of genres all steeped in a passion for the imaginary and unknown.”
“In the tradition of many great dance tracks, there is some fantastic vocal work on this CD. [The] Extraordinary Contraptions’ “No Waste” puts guitar riffs and hot beats under the acrobatic lyrics...”
"This group really is probably the best steampunk rock has to offer. All the songs have their own catchy flavour..."
-Amazon review of "Scratch The Aether"
"“Finally, after much introspection, it dawned on me that this was how music on ‘70s radio should have sounded.... [The Extraordinary Contraptions] combine many diverse elements into a unique sound, and the diversity insures that the CD is never monotonous. This is the hallmark of bands that play in the Steampunk scene, not all clanking and horns. They combine elements that may seem disconcerting to a casual ear conditioned to the superfluous, momentary catchiness of the mainstream into something far more creative with infinitely more staying power."
