About «EXOTIC DREAMS» Massimo Furlan wrote: "Have you noticed how simple it is to integrate yourself into a community? Do you believe that being a Swiss person in a foreign country generates the same exotic feeling as being a foreign person in Switzerland? Have you ever felt alone on New Year’s Eve, surrounded by laughter and confetti? Have you ever felt slightly depressed while watching ‘schlager’ music (schlager = sentimental easy-listening pop ballads popular in German-speaking countries) on TV? Have you never dreamed of learning how to dance the samba? Have you ever noticed that the smile of the person you are talking to is utterly sanctimonious? What would you be prepared to do, to prevent the beloved creature from escaping? I mean, let’s be happy and shake hands."
«Every song is magic - because the really schmaltzy, heart-warming stuff that goes through your whole body makes the world a different place. One could go further: the songs, and movements oozing heart-felt emotion, are capable of opening up bombastic dream worlds – including the crash. It’s a world that seems predestined for dance.»
