John Kelman schreibt: „…Marcellis Kompositionen transzendieren simple Melodien, die den Zuhörer zu bekannten und unbekannten Plätzen entführen, versteckte Emotionen ans Licht bringen… Da ist die Reife des Konzeptes, die klare Vision, die ‚Beyond the Blue’ zu einer Art Markenzeichen Marcellis wird.“
