8/10 Brett Staff review, 16 September 2010

This fella's a mystery to me but Miasmah's certainly one of the more reliable labels around so it's with confidence that I place it on the platter. OK, so first impressions are that this is a classy hybrid of modern ambient techniques, electronic experimentation, field recordings and neo-classical composition. In some respects it's a little bit reminiscent of some of Type's recent output or Leyland Kirby's epic in the way that much of the melody that's to be heard is orchestral and skillfully obscured by static and low-level noise, creating an effect that's incredibly rich with mystery and suggestion but that's only really the start of the story with the synths, electronic textures and found sounds perfectly augmenting the tense, claustrophobic atmosphere which has me thinking of the darkest moments of 'Eraserhead' or 'Lost Highway'. There's definitely huge depth here and I can see it taking many listens to fully come to grips with but even first time around it's a totally rewarding experience.
