  1. It sounds like a home studio project, a whole album of ideas that sound almost-clever but go absolutely fucking nowhere.

    These sparse, string-based scores straddle the line between wannabe ethereal and grainily earthy. [Jul 2002, p.106]
  3. 'Recordings…' might lack the obvious brilliance of his movie making, but it's more than just the dabblings of an enthusiastic amateur.
  4. These sparse, haunting pieces evoke that bedroom-bound-genius mystique many songwriters futilely try to attain. [Sep 2002, p.84]
  5. It’s not essential listening by any means, but an interesting look into his working methods of previous years, nonetheless.
  6. This is an archive of surprises. And one of the surprises of the year. [#220, p.50]
  7. 70
    Largely spare and reflective throughout, Gallo's experimental compositions are intriguing, though the somber beauty of more straightforward pieces such as Buffalo '66's finale, "A Cold and Grey Summer Day," are far more satisfying.
