In 2014, bluesnews.no wrote the following:

"CIA in the 90's was an exciting band. I remember I was with the band one day to play for the inmates behind the walls of Oslo Prison, behind the same gate as Egon Olsen always came out of when Olsenbanden had a plan. I never forget that experience. .... the seriousness they went to the concert with the way they approached their intended audience, and not least a few moments where guitarist Johny Aasgaard delivered solos as well as only a Knut Reiersrud in Buddy Guy mood comes up with in this country."
