"Grenager was particularly notable in her almost relentless pulse early on, a persistent harsh bowing that created a rhythmic foundation for a group that has no conventional rhythm instruments. She also created intense waves of sound, her left hand moving so fast at times as to be nearly invisible, while her right hand bowed the strings with across the entire dynamic spectrum."

John Kelman, allaboutjazz.com: review of SPUNK concert at FIMAV Canada 17.05.08

"Lene Grenager s´attaquait rageusement à son violoncelle comme si elle voulait le modeler, lui faisant cracher les sons les plus inusités, allant du grincement à la mélodie, en passant par le pincement. Plusieurs spectateurs contemplaient son instrument, fascinés, comme s´ils se demandaient à quel moment les cordes allaient lâcher. La musicienne était un spectacle en soi à regarder, très expressive et concentrée à la fois. "

"I particularly liked... and Lene Grenageręs idiosyncratic, rythmically vivid pieces superbly played by the chamber group Affinis."

"..omtrent like behagelig som å gå til tannlegen..."

Nina Krohn, NRK P2 : review of Slåtter, slag og slark

"Utrolig hvor mange vakre klanger og lyder som gjemmer seg inne i en cello. Lene Grenager, også kjent fra bandet Spunk, trakterer sitt instrument harmløst, men med en dyp emosjonell "touch". Med utgangspunkt i norsk folkemusikk sprenger denne platen alle konvensjoner og rammer."
