    Intimate, hurtful and achingly beautiful. A truly excellent album, that needs a open heart to listen to it. It engages the listener in a personal journey. The sound is grainy, but sometimes has clear electric beats that accompany it greatly.

  1. At times, it's as moody and transporting as great film music, but, fat too often, these songs never materialize into anything more substantial than vapor. [Winter 2008, p.80]

    Cold and sweet all at once while perched atop a reef of moody Krautrock, Let the Blind Lead has a progression that melts more than it floats.
  3. The music married to these wonderful lyrics is touching, gorgeous and stunning and there is no doubt in my mind that Atlas Sound has created, arguably, the best album of the year.
