8/10 Brian Staff review, 19 January 2012
Depending on whether you like the sound of a slightly off-key chamber orchestra all blurting out the same slightly skewed note at once in slightly drunken, swaying sleepy waves will determine whether you enjoy this mighty strange and somewhat sinister recording. Too shrill and unsettling for me but the underlying atmosphere is really appealing, like hey, you guys, shut the fuck up and let the silence dominate. In fact by the second track it's fucking me off quite a lot. So I flip over to side two and thank god, this is more like it! Remaining gently discordant in places but with more movement and grace with the merging of ponderous drones and tones, trails and lingering notes, this results in a much less invasive and more involving sound world that will appeal to folk who enjoyed the 'Westering' album by Gareth Davis and Stephen R. Smith or maybe the more recent Music For Lovers, Music Versus Time by F.S Blumm & Nils Frahm. Definitely one for the more adventurous avant-classical fan, the mood throughout is thought-provoking and flops somewhere over the line dividing the camps marked “soothing” and “abrasive”.
