    This album is one of Sasha's masterworks in my opinion, allthough there are some portions that I tend to skip through, this album is excellent fluffy bliss in the clouds.

    These people don't know what they're talking about, absolutely one of the best "electronic" albums out there.

    I'm glad I'm not a critic so I don't look like an idiot when I try to review music I can't understand.

    The most important electronic album since FSOL's "Dead Cities". Reimagines and redefines what trance is and should be, with nary a snare build or cascading arpeggio to be found. Most highly recommended.

    Composer and DJ Sasha, seem to have been inspired to levels of musical proficiency as a present day Bach would be with electronic instruments. This is probably the best example of high quality lounge trance in recent times. This music fits in perfectly with the technology rich communications environments we live in today, and Airdrawndagger may go down as one of the greatest CDs published Composer and DJ Sasha, seem to have been inspired to levels of musical proficiency as a present day Bach would be with electronic instruments.

  1. This bummer sounds more in league with Yanni than Moby.
  2. Airdrawndagger fades so listlessly into the annals of anonymity.

    Its sweeping cinematic scope and all-instrumental tracks recall the lushness of Orbital in their prime. [Oct 2002, p.86]
