    The Marble Downs is an unexpectedly gorgeous concoction of uncanny musical stylings.

    A prayer of a record, despair turned into poetry.

    A collaboration enrichingly beneficial to both sides - and to the listener.

    Even those wearied by Oldham's avalanche of releases should investigate. [May 2012, p.87]

    The Marble Downs should be a welcome addition to the oeuvre of both artists involved. Quirky and challenging, yet ultimately rewarding, it may not garner new fans unfamiliar with either Oldham or Trembling Bells, but it nevertheless deserves a spot amongst the best collaborations of recent years.

    Sometimes it's hair-raisingly great... Elsewhere, this incandescent music can stray into baroque perversity.

    It has its Mr. Fox-y moments but this feels like a minor clanger. [May 2012, p.83]
