    Bring Me the Head of Kyle Bobby Dunn is Dunn's best work to date, consisting of a solid two hours of minimal, emotive, ambient drone that should appeal to fans of Stars of the Lid and Brian Eno.

    Bring Me the Head Of... will not win Dunn an army of new fans, you are either on his wavelength or you're not. It is, however, among his finest work to date and shows an ever-growing refinement and understanding of his chosen medium.

    "An Evening with Dusty" further reveals why Dunn's work is so consistently enjoyable.

    Most of the pieces suggest parallels with Barnett Newman's paintings--fields of pure, striking colour, impressive in their own way, but requiring a particular angle of looking and mode of thought in order not to be boring. [Jul 2012, p.56]

    [Bring Me The Head...] is the perfect accomplice to the contorted bliss of a seductive daydream.
  6. Once again Dunn creates slow, careful, and judicious pieces that mirror the sound between the memories in your head, often lulling the listener into an introspective calm.

Bring Me the Head... has aKyle Bobby Dunn creates a marvelous landscape, dense with drones but with the air-like quality of ambient music. Bring Me the Head... has a strong visual quality, in the sense that it creates recurring images in the mind of the listener. It's what drone music sounds like in the hands of a crafty composer, but it manages to stay shy of any intellectualism and hit emotional nerves with wave after wave of soft noise. Expand
