    Daughter of Cloud accurately depicts an artist who has pushed his artistic license to its very limit. It also makes a convincing argument for the virtue of accepting some of those pushed-aside limitations.

    Unfortunately, this rarities compilation focuses on OM's 2008-until-now phase, and it grates heavily.

    While Daughter of Cloud houses a number of Barnes' most flamboyantly weird musical ideas, they're also frequently some of his hollowest.

    Daughter of Cloud knows exactly what it is, who it is trying to serve, and can hardly be criticized too sharply for having b-sides that sound like b-sides.

    Many of the tracks, all recorded since 2007, echo the questionable cacophonic splurges of 2008's Skeletal Lamping through to this year's lacklustre Paralytic Stalks. But there are some respites.
