  1. As edgy as singer-songwriter pop gets. [Oct 2005, p.158]
  2. Between his willingness to experiment and a bountiful arsenal at his disposal, a spectacular range of dreamlike moods and sounds are created across Infiniheart's sixty-five minutes.
  3. Infiniheart is too bright, too beautiful, and almost too good to be believed.
  4. An excellent new-school Neil Young for the Garden State generation. [26 Aug 2005, p.61]

    I like him better than Sufjan (they are often compared for reasons unknown to me). His second effort will do much better!

    The single "Clinically Dead" will linger in your mind for years. The rest of teh album is a grower. If given the time, a rewarding listen.

    Very impressive lo-fi album. All the tracks work pretty flawlessly together but I would be interested to see what some studio production would do to his sound. Still, stunning first proper debut and one of the year's ten best. Full Review »
