  1. 'Bells of Creation (Machete Mix)' confirms they're not budging from their patented brans of symphonic rock....It's a sizzling cauldron of rock magic, grand in sound and scope. The other songs aren't quite as compelling. [Dec 2008, p.146]
  2. Opener 'Bells of Creation (Machete Mix)' slowly builds from a single piano note to a cathartic wall of sound, a newfound streak of optimism underscoring Conrad Keely's lyricism. The celebratory spirit carries over to the title track, a jovial romp of baroque pop, and the more ornate 'Inland Sea,' balancing progressive movements and post-rock guitar.
  3. A stopgap EP that simultaneously displays the best and worst of what ...Trail of Dead can do.
