"Made in China blends indigenous, Chinese instrumentation with contemporary approaches and tools. And it does it brilliantly. The album is as much about the mandolin as it is about the guitar. It is as much about the pipa as it is about the DJ scratch, it is as much the hulusi as it is the drum kit. The collaborative approach and an experimental spirit essentially make this a Chinese Pigface album. And, like the majority of Pigface releases, Made in China is engaging, challenging, and essential." - Soundsect.com Review
