    It's actually more pleasurable to pick a track at random and leave it on loop. [Sep 2011, p.56]

    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.

    In their own way and in their own time, it's progress. [Oct 2011, p.95]

    Here, they find unsuspected connections between disparate sounds.

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