    An original and fascinating record from three enviably talented musicians, who probably will not spend much longer being so inexplicably overlooked.

    This new full-length suggests that while Nedry haven't quite found their way there yet, the journey should be fascinating.

    The whole thing's really rather magnificent.

    Complex, and replete with glitches, slow beats and breakdowns, In A Dim Light is as captivating as 'Condors', yet with an evident sense of renewed direction and focused calm and quietude.

    It all adds up to an album that is as satisfying as it is unexpected. [May 2012, p.79]

    On In a Dim Light, Nedry never get as self-consciously slick as many of the bands that made trip-hop so dully tasteful in its later years, but they're still at their best when they're fully in touch with their volatile side.

    In a Dim Light turns out to be a frustrating listen; it's an adventurous outing by a band that plainly need to sharpen their craft.

    Maybe on the album "In A Dim Light" can be distinguished variety of interesting dubstep bits merged into a logical whole, but more carefully listening to this album reveals its flaws. Ayu Okakita'a vocals at times not fit into the electronic base, occasionally particular fragments of work "exclude" each other, giving the impression of chaos. However, the compositions are so original, that are worth knowing. Expand
