    It is consistently fresh, inventive and beguiling, showing a band surely at the summit of their powers.

    It’s not that the album is particularly any shorter than any other album – clocking in at around 40 minutes--it’s that it’s so tightly-packed with such consistently good content and is so musically pithy, that you just can’t ever really get enough out of it.

    If E Volo Love was his breakout, Piano Ombre should be the record that will truly resonate with fans.

    Dignified, confident and packed full of elevating song structures, Piano Ombre is an album many will find euphorically addictive.

    It's not ground-breaking, but Piano Ombre is a beautifully off-kilter record to lose yourself in. [Apr 2014, p.109]

    The result is alternatively maddening and satisfying. [Apr 2014, p.74]
