SONIK magazine, issue 54 (January 2010)
The 50 best greek albums of the 00s as voted by the editors of SONIK

#4, #24
"...after "Trypes" it is perhaps the only case of a Greek band that evolves from something passionately cacophonous and by nature inartistic in something unspecified and virtually influential on the Greek alternative sound, in more dimensions than in the case of "Trypes" and with an attitude to disrupt its established aesthetic."
[Aris Karambeazis]
[edited section from the article (p. 49, 51)]

LiFO newspaper, issue 185 (24 December 2009)
GREEK ALTERNATIVE: The 15 «different» names who marked the greek music of the '00s
[M. Hulot]

"From the beginning, with the independent «If all ever ended here», the very good «Cheap pop for the elite» that followed in EMI and connected them to a bigger audience, and up to the latest masterful «The whole truth about the children of '78» which continued slyly the work they started in 2003, Kore. Ydro. remain the same deliberately melodramatic and one of the constant values of the '00s."

End of the '00s: The Greeks

"Maybe it's the album that emotionally opens a hole and without realising it, throws inside whatever you ask. Unusual and disturbing. Incredible and magical."

AvopolisGreek (AVOPOLIS online magazine)
2000-2009: The best albums of the decade, as voted by Avopolis Greek!

"A single case from regional Corfu, Kore Ydro were children of their time - in terms of flirting with the alternative Anglo-Saxon sound - although they advanced more than any other of their fellow travelers, as they were focused on the successful integration of Greek lyrics in that environment. The fourth place in the list came to seal their daring."
[Alexis Voukalis]
[see the lists: 1-25 | 26-50 | see a screen capture]
"In Kore Ydro on the other hand what stands out above all is their intense, edgy and deeply Greek word. Combined with a perfectly played but quite impossible to describe music and a voice somewhere between tragedy and sarcasm, Kore Ydro is the most strangely charming band of the decade. Cheap Pop For The Elite is found in the 4th place, as the album that made them widely known. A true revelation!"

Eleven Electric: 11 moments that can electrify you
[Tasos Patokos]

"The dense guitar grid, the lyrics, the performance - combined with the whole aura of the track, the aggression in the complaint and the sobbing emptying, constitute the most exciting two minutes of music, heard last year in any album." (for «Now that I do not Have Anyone»)

SONIK magazine, issue 22 (November 2006)
Journey in the greek alternative pop/rock scene from the 80s to today
[Aris Karabeazis]
"As soon as Kore. Ydro. ceased to be Corfu’s underground musical achievement, a wider audience had the privilege to go through an aesthetic shock proportional with what the first eye-witnesses experienced seeing live 'Trypes' in "Selini" in the mid-80s."
"The most important greek album of the decade until today."
