    [A] well-crafted album, which was made with love and intention by seasoned artists who have landed on a combination that truly works.

    With Ulrich Schnauss's ambient touches adding extra depth to the mix, it's the sound of a belated coming of age. [Sep 2014, p.96]

    Schnauss' trademark keyboard washes are a significant feature, at times helping stimulate euphoria beneath often gauzy melancholia, elsewhere adding a soothing Pink Floyd-ish balm. [Sep 2014, p.73]

    As consistently lovely as this music is, one yearns for sharper edges to break up the pervasive languid drift. [Sep/Oct 2014, p.74]

    The mood is largely one of milky wistfulness, but the clever textural detail means these songs are more than stylistic cloning. [Sep 2014, p.108]
