  1. 59.59 is an astounding album, quite unlike anything one's ever heard before.
  2. Filter
    Throughout, there are pieces that defy the term "song" and exist more as sonic collages--intriguing bits of paste and mortar between tracks--providing ethereal contemplation and occasional abrasive interludes before returning to the more traditional song structure that is anything but traditional. [Winter 2008, p.100]
  3. 59.59 could use a few more fiery moments like these; as the album settles into its more temperate second half.
  4. Under The Radar
    The result is mesmerizing and eerie, bridging the gap between art-rock, prog, and neo-classical minimalism. [Spring 2008, p.86]
  5. Spin
    When pop structure interrupts the soundtrack-y vibe, it's modestly and briefly too much of singer Sian Ahern's sad, smok voice would lessen the mystery. [Apr 2008, p.102]
  6. Q Magazine
    59:59 wanders prettily yet aimlessly through the atmospheric post-rock undergrowth. [June 2008, p.149]
