  1. Moffat knows how to conduct, contort and concoct fountains of melancholia.
  2. So, an unexpected turn from our commentator on urban squalor with this dreamlike, abstract paean to Mother Nature and the great outdoors.
  3. As lush and expansive as his former work was taut and aggro - only the quality remains.
  4. An incredibly pretty album with depth and scope.
  5. 70
    An evocative set of instrumentals, rich in texture and gentle, melancholic beauty. [May 2007, p.103]
  6. Dip is sort of an awkward sidestep in a new direction for Moffat, but it's still rewarding in places if you have the patience.
  7. Not song-based, the album relies on mood... making its impact in a similar, slightly less accomplished manner to Brian Eno's early ambient experiments. [Feb 2007, p.102]
  8. For all the beauty, there's a certain unsettling, transient aspect to the calm.
  9. There are building blocks for something fantastic in most of these pieces, but only in two of them have they been used to make more than the sum of their parts.
  10. The collages he’s created are undoubtedly lovely, but as they stand, the songs sound more like attractive opportunities for great musicality than confident realizations of it.
  11. 40
    It's tasteful, but not much more. [Feb 2007, p.78]
  12. A totally hit and miss affair, with only two of the five songs clicking.
