  1. The Sight Below has crafted a magnificent album and EP to help weather the darker nights and snowy days.
  2. Lesser producers would ride out these tracks for eight or nine minutes, rather than the six-minute average here; this producer keeps things tight and ever-developing, never straying into formlessness.
  3. Sure, any album that's as all-timbre as this one is going to seem a little one-note. But it's a pretty lovely note.
  4. Glider is a fitting album for an overcast early winter day--cold and brooding, but not oppressively so.
  5. Glider‘s majestic 49 minutes sit, despite the percussive knock at the base of most of these tracks, never quite getting up. And then they wash away.
  6. Glider 's derivativeness and inertia put a cap on its capacity to astonish, but it has a protracted shelf life. It's consummate mood music, which goes a long way toward compensating for its shortcomings.
