“The hope is for serendipitous musical encounters and solidarity in strange times (…). Oiseaux-Tempête is French for storm petrels, and they've unleashed some engaging musical havoc on their journey across the Mediterranean to clasp hands in Lebanon.” — Clive Bell / The Wire (UK)

“Albums like this make something new from their incorporation of so many elements without compromise and without patronising the listener with watered-down Orientalism. It’s an absorbing listen.” — Vanguard-Online (UK)

"Porté par le souffle du présent…” — Addict-Culture  (F)

"Un album qui fait le pont entre modernité et tradition puisqu'il puise dans les sons traditionnels, en les mêlant à un ensemble bourdonnant avec des touches rock et jazz. AL-'AN! qui veut dire ‘maintenant’ est une promesse en l'instant présent." — RTBF Culture (BE)

"Une fusion de styles et d’exploration musicale débordante d’intensité. Sous-jacente à ce poignant, voire viscéral, document sonore, l’instabilité et l’urgence." — Longueur d'Ondes (F)

“Met 'Al An!' (And Your Night Is Your Shadow - A Fairy Tale Piece Of Land To Make Our Dreams) levert Oiseaux Tempête rond Parisiens Frédéric Oberland en Stéphane Pigneul een moderne undergroundklassieker. Het album is overweldigend, compromisloos en vloert eenieder die kennis maakt met de groep.”
— daMusic (BE)
