Melodic Intersect's has been described by Simon Sheppard, at the Chicago Tribune; "I guarantee it will have world music lovers and jazz aficionados swooning in ecstasy, humbly bowing with palms touching and thumbs close to their chest, and whispering "Namaste" over, and over, and over again." Hupages proclaims, "The music of India is as diverse as the land it comes from. The country is a nation composed of twenty-eight states, each with their own dialect, culture, tradition and religion, but united by their love of music. A highly talented combo that calls itself Melodic Intersect, is the embodiment of this love." Hot Indie News writes; "A very wise person once said that life is but only a series of experiences. To understand them one must look within and without, one must look forward and backward, and that one must sometime walk the road less traveled. It is abundantly clear that this is something that Melodic Intersect fully comprehends… they share with us an enriching life experience: their marvelously multifaceted music." Melodic Intersect's 6th studio album, Looking Forward brings forth an ensemble of seasoned musicians from different backgrounds, enriching the discography already in place, and taking a step-forward into the ever-growing landscape that is Melodic Intersect.
