    Imbogodom's ear for corroded beauty only makes And They Turned that much stranger and stronger.

    Swoops and swirls of tape chaff and manipulated sound effects alternate with the kind of beguilingly wistful, haunted folk we've come to expect from Tucker, brilliantly complementing the album's moments of abstraction. [Mar 2012, p.65]

    A hymn to improvisational specificity... a melancholy erotics of noise.

    And They Turned... is at times confusing, frightening, and strangely beautiful.

    The guys are able to transform the tangible aspects of their journey into sounds that turn the listening experience into a traveling experience.

    You may not feel pleasure all the way through And They Turned Not When They Went, but if you're drawn to the bizarre, inconstant emotional terrain of late-night wakefulness, you'll find something honest.

    Far beyond simply avant garde, this is one for the abstract devotee.
