    This beautiful album is an mystical experience, an epic travel to oriental horizons, the sounds are the echoes of a dark landscape a landscape that is rich and beautiful, it is one of the best of this great year!

    This truly is an amazing electronic album; one that combines so many influences, Eastern and Western, past and present. Its sound and the imagery it creates is beautiful, yet at the same time strangely haunting, sort of feels like part of something much greater. My definite favorite from the album would have to be "Friend, You Will Never Learn".

    Some of the lesser tracks are near indistinguishable from other over-hyped post Hypnagogic Pop projects.... But such fumbles are rare. [Sep 2013, p.52]

    While Forest Swords isn’t going to be an easy listen for the average music fan, those that are already predisposed to this type of material will probably get a lot out of it.

    A vision of some shadowy Arcadia, its minimal Timbaland beats and lurking Mezzanine-style bass presented with mud and moss under the nails. [Oct 2013, p.67]
