“The lyrics (of "If I Saw You", by Excorde) are beautiful & heartfelt. The singing performance is flawless. The complex piano chords & song pacing are perfect, allowing us to fully appreciate Jimena's vocal ability, vocal range, vibrato, expression, artistry, musical passion and undeniable singing skill.
(...) So to hear this song & see this phenomenally emotionally charged video, it is a wonderful thing, because the sound quality is immense, the music is immersive & the performance is captivating.
I hope as many people as possible get t see this video so that finally Excorde's potential can be seen on a larger scale.
(...) I'm not sure if I should say '10/10' or just admit it brings me close to tears, that I'm happy to see Excorde put out a video that shows how truly great they are.” Read full review.

“Jimena Arroyo and Torbjorn’s 'Without You' has a Eurovision quality. The production quality is outstanding. It’s like superstar quality out there. While I was listening to that, the whole production really stood out to me, it’s one of those deals you see it being more than just a track out of an album. It’s almost like a soundtrack in a movie, maybe a Broadway show. The production value was awesome awesome stuff.”
— Rick Landstrom, from Music Mafia Radio
"So many emotions locked behind the door ' what wonderfully inspired opening lyrics to a magnificent song ("Ten Waves" co-written with Torbjorn Vagle) (...) An emotional journey captured in words, which makes us all really feel a powerful story expressed with such passion. An amazing adventure which explores the sorrows and triumphs of the human heart. A truly inspiring song-writer.
This song majors on the sorrows of the human heart but the final realisation that all the pain and sorrow was based on false beliefs and lies. The long hard road to truth was worth it. To know she was valued and loved and those who believed she was trash were not worth wasting time on.
I have listened to a number of her songs and I cannot escape the emotional wisdom expressed in her songs."
— David Slater, from Musical Artizan.
