    Foreign Body is stunningly beautiful, crafted with tremendous care and talent.

    Foreign Body crawls under the skin and stubbornly lodges itself there.

    In a world that is newly full of "content" at every turn, it can be refreshing to find an uncompromising record that exists so honestly on its own.

    What Fortino and Harris have done here and across Foreign Body is construct a kind of suspended reality, where the consequences of day-to-day life fail to adhere to their distended sense of duration.

    The best moments here are almost indistinguishable from Grouper's best work.

    Foreign Body evokes alienation from a bottomless chasm of introspection. [Mar 2012, p.57]
  7. 70
    All in all, Foreign Body is a very rewarding and promising collaboration for fans of the more emotive side of droning ambient music.

    Mirrorring have created an album that never coalesces, in which it's difficult not to remain conscious of its parts, wonderful as they may be.

    Foreign Body has moments of generous lucidity. Yet it struggles to find a foothold amid a flood of ideas, as if each performer were vaguely unsure about her role.
