    So vastly unique and a real fresh take on bedroom pop. Even the weakest songs in the middle of the record have a certain air around them. What a fantastic album.

    One of the best chillwave releases of the year; fantastic, ethereal vocals, elegant instrumentation and honest, soulful lyrics. There's a melancholic beauty that permeates the entire album which I'm really impressed by. I can't wait to see what Pat Grossi comes up with next.

    The glitchy future R&B of Playing House is evidence of Active Child's depth, but it's the emotional blood-letting of tracks like dark hymnal Way Too Fast which gives this record a gravitas most popular music never achieves. [Jan 2012, p.92]

    Getting close to these chilly, inscrutable songs is like trying to hug statuary, but their marbled beauty is impressive all the same. [Dec. 2011 p. 123]

    You Are All I See is all about the shimmer, as if rather than playing with cutting edge tech Grossi's touch is so deft, and the sound so seemingly in tune with the natural world, he somehow is able to play with light.
