"Manifesto is an original and distinctly African contemporary reggae soundtrack that is fast becoming my favourite release of 2009. They're steeped in South African music, creating relevant tunes, with a conscious message, and the most exciting and original sound around. Their roots are buried firmly in our culture. And their fruit is one of our sweetest."
- Andy Davis, Mahala Magazine

"Tidal Waves are so accessible. They are always the first band that comes to mind when we discuss bands with a truly and purely South African vibe who aren't the African tribal cliché. I have never left a Tidal Waves show disappointed. It's just not possible to criticise a band that can make you sing along in more than three languages. What other band do you know that can do that?"
- Mique van der Merwe, Rock Out Radio
