"AN ANTHEM FOR THE REBEL IN ALL OF US" - THE REVUE, CA

"Beletic's debut album, Legends of These Lands Left to Live, takes its emotionally raw energy from the wells of transformation and mystery. At times, the record recalls Patti Smith's ragged and desperate punk, the Flat Duo Jets' animalistic rockabilly played super slow, or Cat Power's cigarette-chewing soul — yet, even with such high-profile reference points, Beletic holds her own... Ali Beletic's Debut is one of the most refreshing rock albums I've heard in a while."  - LARS GOTRICH, NPR

"HOLY SHIT, I KNEW LONG BEFORE I HEARD DEAD SERIOUS THAT LEGENDS… WAS GOING TO BE ONE OF THIS YEARS BEST, BUT THAT SONG SEALED ITS FATE AS ONE OF THE BEST ALBUMS I’VE EVER REVIEWED."  - BRIAN SNIDER, SECRETLY IMPORTANT

"The song is sparse and concentrated, with the alternating strum and wail of two guitars, later a subdued piano—even as it builds to a crashing chorus it refuses to scatter, instead garnering a terrifying concentration not too far off from Patti Smith’s growling fury and triumph on Horses. The heartfelt line “We’ve lived so well” sinks deeper with each reiteration and each breath between, and it’s hard not to be swayed. "   - Amelia Pitcherella, Impose

"IT'S RARE THAT WE REMEMBER TO TAKE A BREATHER, AND BE SILENT, WHICH IS WHY ARTISTS WHO PROMPT YOU TO DO THAT CAN OFTEN BE SOME OF THE BEST...THE RESULT HARNESSES THE DETERMINATION OF PATTI SMITH, THE DARK DRAWL OF CAT POWER, AND THE BEATNIK HOME-IS-WHERE-MY-HARMONICA-HOLDER-IS VIBE OF EARLY BOB DYLAN." - EMMA GARLAND, VICE/NOISEY


"Ali gives viewers a chance to discover their sense expression and self-awareness."  - WTF Digital, New York

“Ali Beletic has not only has great stories to tell, she also has stories which we can learn from – about our history and values, and in turn, maybe even learn about ourselves… A true nature's child.”  -Yasmine Ganly, Anyonegirl New Zealand
