“…Cirino is one of the better electronic composers and there’s certainly plenty I enjoy here…” – Jeff Hall, Screensounds

“…Cirino has a mood for motion and excitement in his music that I’m really enjoying better than some of the music I hear which tries to be unobtrusive….” – Goeff Willmetts, SF Crowsnest
