    Mark T. Smith from Explosions in the Sky and Matthew Cooper of Eluvium have come together as Inventions to construct something that leans on the ingredients of their day-jobs but is simultaneously exactly what a combination of both acts should sound like and somehow greater than the sum.

    Make time for this single-sitting long-player and you will be rewarded.

    There are times when you know exactly where you want to go and this is the music to take you there.

    It's no "High Enough," but it is a damn fine collection of selected ambient works.

    There is just enough guitar work and humanity on Inventions to keep it from spiraling off into space.

    While the pedigree of this project is certainly strong, Inventions stands strong on its own, so although fans of Eluvium and Explosions in the Sky won't have any trouble digging into the album, being a fan of the duo's previous work isn't a part of the price of admission.

    Inventions is another mood-friendly collection of ambient works that never impresses too hard upon your feelings.
