"9/10" - Norman Records
"...an absolute killer release... well worth checking out" - Fluid Radio
"a beautifully amorphous blend of ambient, experimental, electronic, and contemporary classical sound worlds" - Second Inversion
"...a gorgeous and beguiling collection of tracks built around pristine piano lines, tender melodies, and beautifully layered vocals of an ethereal nature..." - Stationary Travels
"...a remarkably consistent collection of unabashedly pretty electronic music, weaving together threads of electro-acoustic, neoclassical, and avant-garde into an ultimately cathartic whole..." - The Stranger
