  1. Son should stand as one of the most beautiful and inspiring albums of 2006.
  2. Folk-ambient doesn't get any better than this.

    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. 80
    Quite stunning. [Jun 2006, p.112]
  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. 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
