, May 2001 Dave is included on 100 Sonic Visionaries list, pg. 79
"The sound: Meticulously constructed neo-psychedelic symphonies. Fridmann has been feted as a Phil Spector for the alt rock era. The life: Tired of being a full-time member of Mercury Rev, Fridmann quit the band in 1993 to concentrate on studio work and having a life. His symbiotic relationship with both the Rev and kindred spirits The Flaming Lips occupies much of the time in his isolated upstate New York studio, where he exudes a gentle, stocking-soled presence amid the mayhem. Finest Moment: Mercury Rev, Deserter's Songs (1998) on V2." (scan)
