    Sometimes, the abiding mood is one of grand interstellar drift, an ancient exhausted spaceship cruising through deep space, leaving rippling waves of a strange blank intensity in its wake. [Jul 2014, p.95]

    It is certainly worth investing raw, unprocessed time in exploring.

    Five long pieces allow for the tussle of improv. [Jun 2014, p.71]

    Get lost in this stuff and you won't find your way back out. [No. 109, p.52]

    Shade Themes from Kairos is striking in that it not only hosts a variety of tones and colors based on dynamics, textures, and yes, the illusory stretching of time, but it reflects a true collaboration by principals who are actually investigating what the possibilities of the latter might sound like were it actually possible.

    Hardly euphoric but with some real mastery in the guitar, not dissimilar to Body/Head, this is dark swell of analog experimentation will no doubt intrigue guitar geeks globally.

    This stands up as a decent album of far-out wandering in its own right. [Jul 2014, p.101]
