  1. Son should stand as one of the most beautiful and inspiring albums of 2006.
  2. "Son" is yet another triumph for Molina, who continues to distinguish herself as one of the most innovative electronic artists today.
  3. 82
    On Son, Molina's electro-acoustic compositions have grown from the artful backdrops of her first two records into nearly sentient stand-alone creations. [#20, p.92]
  4. On "Son" she shows off a new confidence, even a willfulness, as she sets free her voice and her sonic wit. [29 May 2006]
  5. Close attention reveals an album of highly varied moods and textures.
  6. Son exudes the studied calm of a laboratory technician engaged in heavy-duty experimentation.
  7. 60
    Son's patchwork of fluttering loops and vocal delays align Molina with kindred spirits Animal Collective, though her listless delivery can dull proceedings. [Jun 2006, p.106]

    What a record. It's relaxing, refreshing, rejuvinating... like your body fused through complete osmosis with fresh, clean spring water. Good sex music, too. Expand
