"Thoughtful and literate music writing." - Steven Wilson, Porcupine Tree
 
"Unapologetically in love with music and its manifold processes, Anil Prasad offers a unique combination of focused interest and humane insight into not only how his subjects' music is made, but also why it is so. His interviews take readers deep into musicians' psyches, as well as their motivations, joys, ears, and aspirations." - David Torn
 
"Anil Prasad's Innerviews: Music Without Borders, is one of the most fascinating reads on the creative process of some of the most exciting contemporary musicians working today. Those who love individualistic, genre-smashing artists will cherish each and every one of these interviews and perhaps be introduced to new music that they will glad to hear for the first time. In a period when culture seems to be all about reality TV, and fame for doing nothing, a book that exposes and digs into truly creative people, with deep wells of desire to communicate in a highly personal matter, is a light shining in the darkness of the mediocrity that surrounds us today." - Michael Shrieve
