    It's a sometime magnificent beast of superior psychedelia. [Jul 2013, p.76]

    Anarchic Breezes is a fully-fledged new direction, and as coherent and powerful a record as McBean has made in his 10-year career. [Aug 2013, p.88]

    Ultimately this is by far the most unusual and spiritually minded thing McBean has yet put his name to, and his feet being firmly planted on earth allow the more astral meanderings of Wasif more power through restraint.

    While there's a touch of that haunting, backwoods territory that gloomy metallers such as Wino and Steve Von Till have dipped into tapping into their rustic roots, Grim Tower is weirder and less eerie. [Jun-Jul 2013, p.87]

    Occasionally plodding, and too ruminative by half, Anarchic Breezes is a journey in need of a destination, stuck between staring at the sun and gazing thoughtfully at its own navel.
