    This is his second essential album of 2012. [Sep 2012, p.70]

    Using just guitars, a 70s analog synth for bass, and drums (Ambarchi's first instrument), he has forged an exquisitely balanced and powerful sound whose apparent simplicity belies a multi-layered exercise in displacement and resolution.

    Sagittarian Domain is an intriguing offering from Ambarchi, if not something with a great deal of potential for repeat success.

    Sagittarian Domain is a noble quasi-failure, an enjoyable and driven jam that, despite its reliance on certain tired tropes of its obvious Krautrock influences, nevertheless succeeds when it focuses its exploration on texture.
