    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.
  2. 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.

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

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

    [Sagittarian Domain] might not be what you're expecting from the man, but it undeniably works.
  6. Sep 19, 2012
    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.
  7. The Wire

    This is his second essential album of 2012. [Sep 2012, p.70]
  8. Oct 23, 2012
    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.
  9. Uncut
    Sep 19, 2012
    A perfect introduction to a musician currently in full stride. [Oct 2012, p.71]
