"Outstanding compilations, sophisticated scholarship" (The Wire, 08/2008)
"One of the most fascinating label samplers, IPR is a magical realm where uncommercial approach meets accessible hook - with complete love, care and joy in creation. Here's to another 30 years!" (The Big Takeover, 05/2010)
"Ordered more or less chronologically, it's possible to chart the development not just of the label, but the ramshackle, reckless postpunk which it championed from its inception. A stark, abrasive reminder of the power and importance of artistic purity and freedom. Four stars" (Record Collector, 07/2010)
