8/10 Ant Staff review, 17 March 2011
The Origami master returns with another lovely CD in custom handmade packaging. What we have here are soul stirring classical pieces along with semi-improvised tracks. Using Pedal Steel, Zither and layered guitars Ratatask's world remains melancholy throughout. It must be said that this chap Rhodri Viney has much to say as he channels his hopes and fears through his instruments which he plays extremely well. At times stripped, minimal and sparse with deeply reflective calm moments, there is the occasional almost ecstatic crescendo. Lovely stuff indeed.
