    Lyrically and melodically it plumbs the depths of emotion, making it among the most compelling entries in Jesu's catalog.

    Everyday innovates within that formula without corrupting it, and proves that the waters of his inspiration have yet to run dry. It’s a high mark in a career full of them.

    Though heavier than ever, Jesu shares a bittersweet longing with the best of Mould's oeuvre, a sense of innocence on the cusp of corruption. [Oct 2013, p.55]

    Though it sounds like it couldn’t be by anybody else, it’s more sonically diverse and less dense than previous Jesu albums.

    The tracks vary greatly in span, but beyond that there’s not as much of a dynamic as on prior Jesu full-lengths.

    Not exactly a collection of lullabies, this is still some of the most achingly beautiful music released yet under the Jesu name. [Dec 2013, p.89]

    There are great moments that fulfil expectations of Jesu as a dissolving whirlpool bath of glass shards, but these flashes don't carry the full weight of the album.
