    Magazine 13's emotional register may be rife with contradictions, but sinking into the album is never anything less than a joy.

    Magazine 13 flits between Art OF Noise preset chintz, serene Vangelis miniatures and serrated Knife-like techno primitivism with such aplomb that it's tempting to view this as either a very good inside joke or striking outsider art. [Jan 2015, p.67]

    For all his clinical reserve and careful attention to detail--some of these beats might as well contain footnotes--Barnt has ended up crafting an unusually heartfelt testament to techno's emotive potential.

    Magazine 13 doesn't feel like a coherent album so much as a more open-ended platform for the same thing we get on his 12-inches.
