6/10 Dave Staff review, 26 August 2010
...I broke my leg in two places, My doctor says I should stop going to those places..there's nothing like a shitty joke to liven up proceedings. This David A. Jaycock sounds like he needs some crap gags to turn his frown upside down. I don't know the feller, he could be the happiest man alive, with a basket of puppies and clothes made of sweets and saccharine smiles. I wager he isn't. His music is maudlin misery and it's your entertainment. It sounds quite good and he's obviously an accomplished songwriter. His strengths are texture and mood, understated vocals and shimmering electronica. His weaknesses are alcoholism and dropsy. I'm just kidding...this album is quite the sprawling opus it wants to be, and is intent on wringing sadness and melancholy from every musical sponge. It might be a miserablist classic....
8/10 Pete Customer review, 23rd December 2014
Ambient misery with a brooding acoustic menace. At times has a hint of early Pink Floyd/ Syd Barrett.... actually what it does sound like the more I think of it is Roger Waters/ Ron Geesin "music from The Body", particularly Sea Shell and the Stone. But don't let that put you off. If you like a bit of avant garde melancholia then you will enjoy this.
