    It’s woozy, dreamlike bliss and Mauro Remmidi owns it well.

    Permanent Signal drinks from a similar, if sonically expanded pool [as 2012 debut Strange Weekend]. [Sep 2013, p.94]

    The polished sheen on each track dulls any inquisition into what (or who) is behind this music. That said, there is an undeniable human brilliance at the album’s core, and the tension of those aspects makes it an irresistible listen.

    Despite the variety of styles on offer, Remiddi’s songs still have a tendency to seep into one another, and there seems to be more of an emphasis on atmosphere than melody on some tracks. However that atmosphere is well worth soaking in.

    As it stands, this is a strangely seductive record, filled with remarkable musical peaks, and proof positive that an ambitious sophomore departure can be wholly satisfying.

    Permanent Signal finds beauty in loneliness.

    While a few songs such as "I Lost Connection" drift beyond Remiddi's flare for the gentle into saccharine territory, that permanent signal he's so earnestly trying to communicate still comes through loud and clear.
