"10 of the finest underground artists you’ve probably yet to encounter gather to celebrate this titan of bliss fused elegance" (The Sunday Experience)

"Oras, é que 10 bandas italianas fizeram cada uma a sua versão para as músicas desse álbum seminal, gerando Souvlaki Reheated – An Italian Tribute to Slowdive, uma beleza de tributo" (A Horda Nao Nomeada)

"Un nostalgico manipolo di dieci musicisti italiani, i quali, sotto l’egida della Seashell Records, convogliano all’interno di una rivisitazione collettiva la loro condivisa devozione verso quel capolavoro – e verso lo shoegaze tutto – che risponde al nome di “Souvlaki”, ognuno preservando le rispettive peculiarità stilistiche senza per questo snaturare quelle eteree sospensioni sonore, sature di perdizione onirica, che hanno reso celebri (e rispettati) Rachel Goswell & Soci" (Rockit)

"Every song tells its own tale; has its own mood. It is like a collection of snapshots…a sonic photo-album. I think it is this quality of “Souvlaki” that has inspired the artists on “Souvlaki Reheated”, since they seem to bring out the specific character of the songs, sometimes almost to its bare-bone structure. The emphasis here is clearly impressionistic which is a bit surprising, to be honest" (The Primal Music Blog)

"Questo lavoro comunque denota un fatto incontrovertibile e cioè, quanto lo shoegazing sia ancora vivo e vegeto in Italia e quanto sia delittuoso rinnegare l’amore e l’interesse per questo sound evidentemente non ancora fuori contesto" (Shegazin' Your Waves)

"Um tributo inusitado ao grupo Slowdive com diversas bandas italianas, me chamou a atenção pelo fato de que é ótimo, pois eu tinha uma impressão errada de que na Italia nada de bom tratando-se de cena independente havia, tirando aquele fatídico tributo ao Joy Division lá nos anos 90. Surpreendente" (The Sound and the Fury)
