    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.

    [Sagittarian Domain] might not be what you're expecting from the man, but it undeniably works.
  3. It's all very well-done, but it's not something that you'll feel much incentive to revisit over and over; an experience worth taking, but not necessarily one worth repeating.

    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.
  7. Uncut

    A perfect introduction to a musician currently in full stride. [Oct 2012, p.71]

    Here Ambarchi shows how sharp about-turns and starkly dissimilar contrasts can be equally potent.

    It's a pleasure from the get-go: a nicely ominous plucked guitar rhythm of a couple of notes is the bed for even more moody feedback wails and fading in/out arcs of feedback.
