    Demanding lyrics coupled with top notch production quality lead to one of the best albums of the year in my book. Vanderslice's site reveals the story behind many of the songs as well as production notes for the record.

    Vanderslice's detached delivery of this riveting material, combined with the somnolent string arrangements, makes Pixel Revolt feel like a chilled-out remix of a book-on-tape recording. [Sep 2005, p.158]
  2. An uneven album that encapsulates much of what's gone flat in the scene he helped ferment, along with the few flourishes that make him a vital creative force.
  3. John Vanderslice has not created a compelling first listen. Perhaps, and only time will tell, he has created a compelling lifelong listen.
