    The cascading ping and pop of 35 Summers and arpeggiated digital melancholy of Unbank is evidence of Plaid's empathy with this most beguiling of music forms. [Nov 2011, p.103]

    Over a distant wash of keyboards chords, Plaid create a multilayered drift of what sounds like piano and tuned percussion notes. The effect is, literally, scintillating.

    Scintilli's pieces are as varied as ever, but carefully drawn, like working on separate days with blowtorch-on-metal or in purple and blue oils. [Oct. 2011, p. 113]

    There is a poise about Scintilli in its strongest moments that was absent even from those early blazed trails.

    Scintilli slowly builds an all-absorbing world, [with] tension between fear and beauty. [Nov. 2011, p. 139]

    Perhaps most frustratingly, Scintilli doesn't have as much of a sense of continuum as the aforementioned trilogy--which is something that any good album should have.

    Scintilli is a disappointingly static record from a duo of born tinkerers.
