    The best ambient music of today. Instinctively sure of itself yet decidedly 'unassuming.'

    Versatile, cohiesive work of beauty....ahhhhh.... if Elliott Smith had only relocated to Louisville instead of L.A. he might still be of this soil and sounding like this. David Christian Pajo is to be commended for this 2005 masterpiece!!!

    An album of slight promise which for the most part is unable to rise above, weighted by overly dominant production, beneath which songs of morbid mediocrity sit. Worthy of purchase, however, solely to sample the distant echo of Roman Candle era Elliott Smith on

  1. While the self-imposed constraints limit the emotional power of songs like "Mary of the Wild Moor" and the hushed, fingerpicked "Manson Twins," it's a happy addition to Pajo's solid lo-fi repertoire.
  2. This record doesn't intend to blow your hair back; it wants to get under your skin, and with its twinkling arpeggios, morbidly graceful lyrics, and barely there electronics, slowly, it does.

    A most pleasant surprise. [Jul 2005, p.122]
