"Listening to After Dinner is like submerging yourself in water and going to sleep while playing Kate Bush on one CD player and traditional Japanese music on another." (Julian Cope presents Head Heritage)


アフター・ディナーの音楽を聴くのは、あたかも自身が水のなかに沈みながら、ケイト・ブッシュをひとつのCDプレイヤー、日本の伝統音楽をもうひとつのCDプレイヤーでかけながら眠りにつくようなもの。 (Julian Cope)


"Haco has a soft, airy voice and her lyrics (sung in both English and Japanese) are inflected with an intelligent sense of whimsy as she sings of the dreamier aspects of modern life." (Brian Olewnick)


Hacoは柔らかい空気のような声をしていて、彼女の歌詞 (英語と日本語の両方で歌われた) は、モダンライフの夢見がちな側面が奇抜な知的センスからひねり出されている。(Brian Olewnick)
