This album in the press :

- jub in Humo : "Bombastic! There, I said it, the word that will probably pop up in each and every Monza-review. We know someone who has listened to 'Van God los' with the loudness button of his stereo on. Well, he's now in room 104 of the Virga Jesse-hospital in Hasselt, no visitors allowed ... "Van God los" is a debut album with quite a few youthful zits. But you can win Humo’s Rock Rally with four good songs, so what are we whining about. They've already let go of God. Monza are planning a theater tour soon. Maybe they'll see the light there. Amen."
- Matthieu Vansteenkiste at Goddeau : "Monza doesn't only mean terrific singles such as "De Stad kan zo koud zijn" or "De Ogen van Jenny", but also three-songs-in-one as "Leaving Las Vegas" or the cleverly titled, but disgraced by a wrong discobeat "Alleen te zijn en hoe er mee om te gaan". And that the band really hits a miss sometimes, is proven by "Scheiding Kerk en Staat". ... All in all not a bad album then, but it seems that all the unexpected attention for the first single has made things go just a little too fast and sudden for Monza."
