"What is most striking is the way Third World effortlessly manage to blend reggae with funk to produce something quite remarkable and unique. The quality of the musicianship is a joy to behold and that vital element is supplemented by soulful – verging on gospel at times – harmonies and a powerful set of lyrics". -Everythingsgonegreen
" institution that produces and performs music that is cutting edge, positive, progressive and internationally relevant." -The Daily Observer
