    In terms of strict musical presence, Arbouretum's tracks take the prize, but both bands offer folk/psych goodies to forget yourself to. [Jun 2012, p.158]

    It's an intriguing juxtaposition of the crunchy and the smooth. [May 2012, p.75]

    It's the complementary nature of the bands' sentiments more than their sounds that makes Aureola successful.

    So a game of two halves, with enough excitement from Arbouretum to keep it interesting--but cosmic Americana fans may find more solace in their (excellent) previous two records The Gathering and Song of the Pearl than they will here.

    Though Arbouretum comes out more interestingly here than Hush Arbors, Wood's music is a more intriguing in its weirdness.
