    Far Side Virtual is a convincing evocation of the digital dreamtime. [Nov 2011, p.58]

    In essence, Ferraro has crafted a noiseless noise record.

    Such dedication to an aesthetic means Far Side Virtual gets a little tedious: It's 16 songs that aren't all that catchy but aren't exactly ambient either.

    Plug in and turn on, baby, surrender to its augmented charms.

    Besides adhering to his familiar sonic longings and rather than dampening the message, Far Side Virtual succeeds in exciting the collective memory of that generation now so conjoined to its technological appendages.

    There are certainly active emotions fuelling the themes laid out on this album, and I daresay you could identify fragments of meta-commentary. It's just that you need to take most of it on good faith.

    On Far Side Virtual, he makes a glowing, glossy album out of everyday digital detritus.
