Math Lemmen placed a review of THE COUCH on the website of Progwereld .

When you are working as a psychologist, in music strongly influenced by the symphonic rock and record an album with the title "The Couch", according to me the point is made. So don't expect exuberant symphonic rock. The sympho-influences that you hear on this album are more in line with that of Anthony Phillips, Camel and the quieter work of Steve Hackett.

Airplay: Werther as 'Dutch Treat' in Jawdy's Basement!

For this American progrock radioshow (from New Jersey) Wouter van Hal every week proposes a progrock track from a Dutch artist. In the first show of 2015 his contribution was WERTHER from The Couch. The longest Dutch Treat ever! DJ Jawdy spoke about the first meeting of Wouter and me in a local pub and spoke of The Couch as "pretty neat stuff" and of Werther as "a tremendous epic track".

The first review of The Couch, written by Rinco Ennema:

"For lovers of light music with depth, this is a must. Stories are sung with a voice that emanates tranquility.
