    Once the languid beats and innocent twilight melodies of Mark Mitchell's spacious oddity of an album hits the fourth track, you begin to realize a certain cohesion to this eccentric electronic work.
  2. Come Here When You Sleepwalk is a soporific reverie that wafts gently and beguilingly but ultimately insubstantially.
  3. He sings with surprising forthrightness yet these 10 electronic daydreams are not songs in any conventional sense. [May 2003, p.100]
  4. The songs are frustratingly stagnant-- albeit beautiful-- exercises in lap-pop textures.
  5. 70
    An elegant digital reverie. [Apr 2003, p.112]
  6. 70
    Feyness is a constant threat, but Mitchell's British debut generally tiptoes clear of whimsy, mixing up the guitar loops, squitting beats and genteel vocal angst in a way which becomes insidious. [Apr 2003, p.105]
  7. Compared to similar but more extroverted acts like Capitol K and Manitoba, Clue to Kalo lacks the jagged pop edges that stick in the listener's memory.
  8. The few moments of clarity don’t diminish Sleepwalk’s seductive anesthetic, which may be one of the album’s drawbacks.
  9. Sleepwalk an essential body of work for those who enjoy their electronic music with a little human interference.
