“'Ink Compatible': "Spastic Ink boldly goes where no mere mortals would dare tread. A revolutionary statement 'Ink Compatible' is a masterpiece of originality. This entire CD will blow the doors off of the prog-jazz-fusion crowd worldwide. A must have for the serious music connoisseur."”
“'Ink Compatible': "This is a shred album, but one that stomps all over the swollen fingers of Yngwie Malmsteen, or the spindly fingers of Steve Vai, or the bluesy fingers of Joe Satriani. May it be carved in granite the truth that Ron Jarzombek is a fret-deity of as much worth as that aforementioned trio, that he is a musicological genius, and that "Ink Compatible" is a befitting showcase of his majesty."”
“'Ink Compatible': "Spastic Ink is undoubtedly the most technical mind-boggling shit I have ever heard. A true gem for any progressive metal fan, this is sure to give you your fix."
“'Ink Compatible': "The sheer level of technicality on display is amazing, and the fact that their music is so very unique is a testament to Ron's vision and dedication. No one else in the metal world is mixing these kinds of tonalities with this level of complexity in the way that Ink has been doing for over a decade."”
Chronicles of Chaos
“'Ink Compatible': "'Ink Compatible' spews technicolor mayhem across musical mediocrity. It teases, trounces and tramples melodic tradition with a smirk, a wink and the most hellacious riffs this side of WatchTower."”
“'Ink Complete': "Although instrumental records from proficient players are often about as appealing as the hastily forgotten Lemmy spread in Playgirl, Ron Jarzombek stands stands out above all of them, less an over-practiced virtuosos than a craftsman - turned - mathematician."”
“'Ink Complete': "One of the best instrumental albums that I've heard in a long time."”
“'Ink Complete': "Makes me wonder if these guys are really human and not some alien androids that eat syncopations for lunch and just disguises into rock musicians. For fans of challenging music this is a MUST!!!!"”
“'Ink Complete': "What you get from Spastic Ink is more than the typical. You get the extraordinary. You get groundbreaking play from three highly-skilled musicians who aren't afraid to explore the limits of their ability."”
