Jonny Inglis It was Bad Code or The Mirror, but every song is excellent. Listened to this non-stop when it came out, great to revisit again - hasn't aged. Favorite track: Bad Code.

Steve Lawson heavy, instrumental awesomeness. Surprisingly varied textures and crushing metal. Good times :) Favorite track: At The Dream's Edge.

Kÿle Macqüarrie It's like Animals As Leaders jamming with Vangelis. Crushingly heavy, beautifully arranged, full of atmosphere, more ideas than the next hundred 'djent' acts put together. Highly recommended. Favorite track: Under One Sky.

Nathan Shepperd There are very few artists producing instrumental progressive metal like this with a jazz fusion influence. Various time signatures and a bit of fun with rhythm. 7/8 should be far more appreciated than it is...
I would rate Paul Ortiz along with Tosin Abasi for inventiveness in the progressive world. Favorite track: Terminus Pt II.

'At The Dream's Edge', the second full length from Prog's greatest virtuoso monkey, released 4th December 2010.

'Crystalline production, exceptional instrumental performances and intricate songwriting combine to make At The Dream's Edge an engrossing listen. Highly recommended.' 4/5 - One Metal

'Put simply this is an album that will let you lose yourself for an hour in some of the most inspiring music that I have heard in years.' 9/10 - This Is Not A Scene

'The highest compliment that I, as a review and listener, can give Paul is this; I am jealous of his composure abilities. This is hugely ambitious music, that is executed with surgical precision and has soul baby' 4.5/5 - Sputnik Music

'Throughout the album, Ortiz demonstrates not only a musical proficiency that is unmatched in his field but a scope that outstrips a lot of the instrumental musicians out there. It's not a case of he can play the fastest licks or the heaviest riffs, it's more that he writes some of the best instrumental music that I've ever heard. If Ortiz can keep up this level of quality then soon enough he will be hailed as the next Steve Vai.' 9/10 - MWD Reviews
