    Tristeza is different with their orcestrated style. [Jan/Feb 2006, p.103]
  2. Plays like the soundtrack to a string of awe-striking discoveries. [Feb 2006, p.120]
  3. The general interchangeability of the tracks works for and against them. [13 Jan 2006, p.76]
  4. Though A Colores is rather uneven, it's a compelling-- and more than competent-- effort.
  5. Like instrumental masters Tortoise, the new Tristeza is much like the old, offering subtle variations on a pleasant theme.
  6. Though not a particularly groundbreaking or remarkable album among post-rock instrumental compositions, A Colores is solid and has a lot of movement, the rhythms and melodies rolling tempestuously between the speaker channels.
  7. A Colores’s most glaring failure is its reluctance to shift from the narcotic tone it so quickly assumes.
