    On the whole, Forever is downcast, introspective, and melodic.
  2. The record is at its best when it combines its pop sensibilities with its ambient leanings.

    There are some points where the music becomes overburdened by its lavish texturing, primarily in the few instrumental tracks, but for the most part the album functions as a beautiful, illusory trip from start to finish. [Oct. 2011, p. 113]

    The immediate embrace of anything analogue-warped by certain corners of the Internet shouldn't detract from Forever, as it's quite an engaging listen when the right (nocturnal) mood strikes.

    While Franciotti's work is far from unique in its revival both of lo-fi synth panoramas and of ambient experimentalism, the combination and alternation of the two allows Forever a certain originality beyond other musicians mining either one or the other vein.

    Ultimately, the album's song-oriented material is the most memorable.
