    This is an album that seeks to push boundaries, and succeeds. [May 2004, p.84]

    Blockhead injects enough emotional expression into the dusky downtempo tracks to separate himself from the knob-twiddling pack. [2 Apr 2004, p.66]

    Excellent. [Jun 2004, p.111]
  4. It's not as interesting as it could and probably should be.
  5. Without a deft rap to go over these tracks, many of them merely drift over the listener.
  6. Though the dark atmosphere can weigh Cavelight down on extended listening, it is the record's most lush, emotional moments, like the operatic "Sunday Séance," that are most suggestive of Blockhead's potential.
  7. The biggest problem with the album is that most of the tracks feel like there should be a rap over them.

    If this music "merely drifts over you", you should shut up and listen to it.
