    Selected Studies Vol 1 is an entirely successful undertaking on its own terms, enriched by the quiet absorption of congruent confederates who intuitively understand that all manner of gods and devils are in the detail.

    A very odd and somewhat unpredictable partnership, but one that is pleasantly surprising in its own way.

    It leaves Selected Studies in an odd place, one that doesn't feel like any kind of stretch for one of its participants, but is quite the opposite for the other.

    Less a big splash, more fascinating ripples on a pond. [Apr 2013, p.89]

    The jarring throb of HIQS aside, it's an album of subtle charm that rewards repeated listening. [Mar 2013, p.95]

    Selected Studies Vol. One is the type of album that doesn’t necessarily grab you upon first listen, but there’s much here to come back to and revisit.
