    New Clouds is poised between towering psych-noise and ambient beauty, intermittently etched with quicksilver. [Nov 2009, p.101]
  2. Impressively impressionistic, New Clouds is a rare mix of restful and engaging, and a significant step forward for Forkner.
  3. Its a synthesis of all of Forknerā€™s previous experiments, refined and expanded for the big screen.
  4. If you're able to view it through that lens, then New Clouds has much to offer as an unscripted, decidedly un-pop kind of album: mood music and drug music, yes, but more than that, the uncompromising work of a dude making sounds strictly on his own terms.
  5. New Clouds is as good a record as any to soundtrack disconnection from deep thought.
  6. 60
    New Clouds is at once both denser and groovier. [Nov 2009, p.113]
  7. This robot-induced hypnosis leads less to genuine enlightenment than it does to pointless New Age dehydration.
