    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.

    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.

    Permanent Signal’s lack of ambition and almost-there mentality will leave mouths craving something a bit more flavorful.
  6. 60
    Coherent though it is, songs have a habit of blending into one another, and all too often end up sounding like that noise when you’re constantly on hold.

    It's not time to write Porcelain Raft off, but Remiddi needs to bring more ideas to LP number three.
