  • Summary: Brendan Angelides releases his debut full-length album as Eskmo.

  2. Negative: 0 out of 10
  1. Not terribly beaty and almost never fast. Just the kind of weird background music that's guaranteed to engross whenever you lend it both ears.
  2. Eskmo is clearly a major talent, and if his muse takes him in odd and inscrutable directions, it's almost always worthwhile to follow and listen.

    This extended incubation period has paid dividends. [Nov 2010, p.65]
  4. Put this album on in the background and the chances are it will create a nice chilled atmosphere; but that's it, really. And that's disappointing. There's no denying that Eskmo's construction methods are intriguing, but it lacks coherence.

    His throaty, gnarled vocals--best showcased on the meandering, Dilla-esque Cloudlight--lend his music a gothic mood. [Nov 2010, p.109]
  6. As a listener, you pretty much have Eskmo pegged by halfway, and it's disappointing that there aren't any sonic curveballs in the second half.

    This album is like a drunk, stumbling around in the night. You can see potential, and the sight is entertaining. But a drunk's brand of amusement gets pretty old after a pretty short while.
