  1. The farther they wander, the more magnetic they become.
  2. Motion To Join makes the druggiest meanderings of the similar "Spiritulized" sound full of pep. [Dec 2008, p. 126]
  3. With hooked beaks and mighty talons, Brightblack Morning Light rip and gut the carcass of psychedelic rock, leaving it exposed and decomposing on the side of the road.
  4. Brightblack Morning Light retain a signature, singular, salient sound and still refuse to nudge their songs forward at anything but a crawling pace.
  5. I get the feeling if I was just chilling out, their Spiritualized-on-barbiturates grroves might be alright. [Fall 2008, p.86]
  6. Brightblack Morning Light's intentions and actions are indeed admirable--they're committed advocates of much more than just drug legalization--but Motion to Rejoin struggles mightily to articulate a focus aside from tranquility.
  7. New mexican drone rock duds. Tune free zone.
