"There's a deeply meditative, almost spiritual beauty to these tracks; a melancholy that's simultaneously strangely hopeful." Drowned in Sound

"This remarkable album is actually what I personally always wanted 4AD records to sound like, only they never quite delivered the hazy pleasures their beautiful sleeve art promised." Pitchfork [8.2]

"A psych-folk bent for harmonic discord and atmospheric dread finds something forever sinister lodged at the album's heart: the kind of beauty that makes sailors run aground." Mojo

"More than just a pretty acoustic record, Harris, through Grouper, has created a startlingly vivid and brooding shoegaze gem that works in spite of its length and first impressions." Sputnik

"On this wonderful, foggy dream of a record, Portland's Liz Harris has gone and bested nearly everything she's done as Grouper. Music this lovely could almost change the world." XLR8R
