::::MUTATIS MUTANDIS MAKES #9 IN TOP 25 LOCAL ALBUMS OF 2003::::
Reviewer Cris Ramos of The Manila Times places Mutatis Mutandis in the #9 spot on his list of 25 best local albums.
“9). Acid 42, Mutatis Mutandis (self-produced). A versatile release that captures the different textures and nuances of electronic music. Proof that you can load up all the software and the hardware you can find, but in electronica and any other musical genre, the most state-of-the-art musical gadget is the human brain.”
::::MANILA TIMES REVIEWS MUTATIS::::
Writer Karl DeMesa reviews Mutatis Mutandis in the national newspaper, The Manila Times, and has glowing and precise comments about the album. An excerpt:
“All in all though Acid 42’s Mutatis Mutandis is an accessible and enjoyable musical odyssey that can serve not only as a great introduction to electronica but also as a way to elevate the genre in the local scene. It is competent enough for that.”

Excerpt from the DIGITAL MEDIA FESTIVAL 2001 brochure:
Though the Festival focused on video-based and web-based works, Lasay made room for audio with a live electronic music session conducted by Lionel Zivan Valdellion (sic), online content editor of Doubleslashmedia.com. Valdellion (sic) illustrated the use of Acid42 (sic), a digital compositing program similar to Photoshop where an image is composed by manipulating its various layers.
