Reviews

With a bit more diversity in the music arrangement, providing more variety between tracks, Estranged could well be an undiscovered Malaysian gem. -TERRINA HUSSEIN, The Malay Mail, 15 June 2005

Estranged's approach may seem middle ground, but there's still plenty of anger, as evident with plenty songs on 'In Hating Memory' being about times. -ADLIN ROSLI, New Sunday Times, 26 June 2005
