  1. Shimmeringly beautiful and richly unpredictable. [Mar 2003, p.92]
  2. A darkly shimmering, intensely brooding and exquisitely melancholy trip.
  3. Few bands... make slowing down sound this risky.
  4. The band's tendency to start a song quiet, loose, and lovely and then slowly sweat it into a faster, intensified crescendo is familiar by now, but somehow remains vividly evocative.
  5. Drummer Jim White and guitarist Mick Turner lend understated support throughout, but it's Ellis's eloquent bow that captivates. [Mar 2003, p.103]
  6. 70
    Mood-wise it's their bleakest yet. [Mar 2003, p.112]
  7. If the arrangements were given as much attention as the astonishing, rich, in-the-same-room production: 9.1

Another instrumental masterpiece from a beautiful band. Expand
