    The core of Dream On though is an album, and a good, if imperfect, one at that. It’s an LP worth exploring with the cultural filters both turned on and off.

    Ital's sense of abrasion and his notion of groove are both finely tuned, so it's all for the best when they work in parallel.

    Vocals are stretched and warped, beats submerged into icy baths. [Dec 2012, p.94]

    Dream On moves in pretty similar territory to Hive Mind and with almost as much flair.

    These are soundscapes rather than tracks.

    There's nothing tender here; clever it may be, but too clever for its own good.

    Its best tracks suggest a similarly abrasive, exploratory and jammed on the fly approach to House music [as Jamal Moss].
  8. The record touches on new tonal and structural territories, however incremental, while maneuvering within the same basic framework laid out in Ital's debut.

    This lack of clear signposts can make navigating the nightmare-laden second half of Dream On a bit more difficult as the sound effects pile up and the tracks get denser.
  10. Nov 14, 2012
    As with Hive Mind, the record's most interesting moments are its briefest, almost as if Martin-McCormick's strongest ideas are the implied ones, the unrealised ones.

    Dream On finds him utilizing the computer-processed end of his sound with a newly savage intensity.
