"Masuak relays the best sort of lean, world-wise Aussie rawk originally borne on the gristly wings of the Stooges, The MC5 and the unreasonably underrated Sonic's Rendezvous Band. Bouncing from mid-tempo rockers to poignant burners, KN40 delivers in spades.This could be one of the top albums of this, or any, year."

- Jeff Monk, Uptown Magazine, Winnipeg, Canada


"Classic Detroit-style Volga Boatmen backing vocals arch in throughout and Masuak’s own voice has just enough roughness in it to fit., though the guest singers like Pepper and Sonic’s Rendezvous’ Scott Morgan seem to be getting plugged a little more than necessary.

In basic live line-up, the North 40 is a more than serviceable power trio of good order, though even in that guise now Masuak has handed on the vocal duties. It growls, it twists, it goes alright. "

– Ross Clelland, Drum Media, Sydney


"Several generations of rock'n'roll kudos are wrapped up in all this..."The Straight Path" is a head-banging example of a man wearing his indulgences well. It might introduce younger folks to these at the same time as it pushes the buttons for those of us who miss those rolls in the thunder. BOC fans will find much to transport them back to their old haunt. Screamin' dizbuster cocktails all round. "

- Lindsay Hutton, Next Big Thing, Scotland
