"An Avalanche of Swollen Tongues" opens with the 23 minute long title track of kaleidoscopic spectral ambiance. Swells of celestial tones reach back and forth around your mind, surrounding your sense in a warm glow. The glorious "Grains and Waves" follows. An outstanding piece of melodic genius; euphoric and intense and filled with overwhelming emotion.

8/10 Smig 9th September 2014
True, the first and title track opening here takes about 1 1/2 mins to actually approach the ears of the listener and make its presence known. And, to be fair, the next 21 mins of the opening track aren't as absorbing as I hoped they would be .BUT, this is made up for on track 2. grains & waves -a sublime slice of granular and wavey repeating beauty which has sound tracked many long summer drives this year and probably will continue into the next season. Track 3 is equally tasty but not as enveloping as is the rest of the album but definitely worthy of a poke!
