    Exercises is elegant, welcoming, if somewhat melancholic. [Oct 2012, p.95]

    This majestic medley of eight 'exercises' is a fine display of creativity, where morphing piano loops sound like the modern classical of Philip Glass honed into a structured formula.
  3. A Canadian producer who manages to strike a balance between the sturdy emotiveness of pop and the shimmering beguilement of ambience.

    Shows that CFCF aspires to be known as a serious artist, not just an electronic one.

    It isn't difficult to imagine that in a few years time, he'll already have a few masterpieces under his belt. Fortunately, while Exercises doesn't reach that level, it comes close enough to keep everyone not only interested, but invested.

    Don't expect any club bangers or hot remixes. But the exciting part is that, in Silver, it's starting to look like we might have a true composer on our hands.
  7. It can become background music all too easily: while Silver's work will always have a degree of ambience to it, Exercises can completely disappear from your consciousness if you don't pay enough attention, especially during the last few tracks.
