  1. The Wire
    Unlike a lot of electronica, the music never lapses into mere tastefulness. [#235, p.75]
  2. Alternative Press
    You appreciate his delightful little melodies and quirky rhythmic tics more because you have to strain to hear 'em. [Aug 2003, p.110]
  3. These minimalist songs are surprisingly and undeniably funky.
  4. For those who prefer less academic wave crushing and more pop elements in their electronic music, Player, Player pleasantly delivers the goods.
  5. Beckett references numerous stylistic signposts across the multifaceted recording’s thirteen tracks--Merzbow, Chain Reaction, Fennesz, Techno, Pole--but manages to personalize his music too by infusing its cool, abstract minimalism with a sensual warmth and melodic pop sensibility.
  6. It's a bit harsh of me to say that there's nothing interesting going on in Player, Player because that's certainly not the case. Instead, the problem seems to be with contructing the songs themselves.
