Press resonance: “Mati Turit nimetatakse nõutuimaks Eesti lauljaks maailmas. /.../ Usun, et näiteks Mati Turi haruldaselt sisendusjõuliste soolode maagia veel pärast kontsertigi kuulaja liikmeis tuksleks... Kriitikute kiidusõnu lugedes tekib tahtmatult küsimus, kas Mati Turist on kasvamas Eesti oma Pavarotti või Domingo.” (Merike Kungla, Linnaleht, 26.10.05, Estonia)
