The band is one of the Argentine groups with more releases abroad: its catalague shows more than 120 releases in labels from Japan, Europe, Oceania LatinAmerica and USA. It has been previously considered as "cult group" by The Wire and French festival Sonic Protest proclaimed it as “groupe phare” (lighthouse group) of music integration for people with disabilities. Japanese cult magazine Studio Voice included their album Reynols/No Reynols amongst the “300 Legendary Discs” of all times, and UK magazine Fact considered 10.000 Chickens Symphony as one of the "20 Best Argentine Psychedelic Records" ever made.

REYNOLS appears in dozens of films and books and recently a Spanish publisher added the band to a Sticker Album. For his work with REYNOLS, Miguel Tomasín has been considered as one of the most relevant personalities with Down's Syndrome worldwide and his name appears mentioned in diverse books of Neuroscience and Neurodiversity.
