  1. 80
    Merging synth orchestration and genuine strings ins't new, but [Marc] bianchi pushes the form toward and organic/technological inevitable. [#52, p.89]
  2. Like Kid A's little brother, Manic Expressive pops and gurgles through spacey, multi-textured compositions.
  3. Both soothing and exhilarating. [Jan 2002, p.84]
  4. This is mellow, ambient electronica that takes its time in getting where it's going, and rewards patient listeners.
  5. The embryo that is Manic Expressive promises much from the future. [Nov 2001, p.122]
  6. A rather mousey, introspective record, awash with the wishy-washy sounds of shoegazing, and yet not without its precise, audacious moments.
  7. If the whole album had the strength of the final track, I would be seriously pleased. But it does not. Rather, Manic Expressive as a whole sounds like a failed attempt at a) minimalism, b) ambient, and c) IDM.
