„This is an exquisite album in which the musicianship is deft. The all original compositions are clear and thoughtful in their arrangement. I would highly recommend this album to fans of jazz/progressive rock.“ – Hal Taylor
„Two words-simply amazing! This new recording from classic progressive rock and fusion masters The Muffins after a twenty year hiatus is a breathtaking example of just how much fire is left in the genre. Bandwidth combines melodic jazz sensibilities with complex prog song structures and the searing nature of classic fusion, for a ride that was well worth the wait.“ – Pete Pardo / Sea of Tranquility
In a very happy occurance, all four members of the classic quartet line-up of The Muffins reformed in 1998 and began developing a new repertoire and performing concerts.
In a world glutted with half-baked reformations by bands looking to cash in on past glories, Bandwidth is the genuine article; a reformation of all the original members who who have gotten together not for money, but because they miss what they had done together in the past and who feel that they still have something to say.
Bandwidth is very recognizably the work of The Muffins; you can hear strains of both Manna/Mirage and <185> here, as well as lots of new elements. As we all know, there are very few second chances in life; as the saying goes, „you can’t go home again.“ But we and The Muffins have all been handed another chance with Bandwidth.
