"A stunningly assured debut... the band's compositional elegance and ear for a genuinely affecting melody make this a hugely enjoyable listen."
8/10 Rock Sound magazine

"Something a little more for you post-rock flavoured progheads – more than challenging some of the bigger names associated with the whole scene." ORGAN

"Regularly crossing the divide between heavenly beauty and hellish aggression, this is certainly not purgatory but rather a complex and at times monstrously beautiful breed of prog-influenced post-rock that is fully capable of tugging at the heart strings as well as the adrenal gland."
8/10 -
Full review:

"When the serene tinkling of the ivories combines with the steady rhythmic gallop of a thousand thoroughbred stallions in the opening minute of Swimming in Streets you know there is something beautiful around the corner, and that comes in the form of Glass Light Shatters a wondrous few minutes which pause under clear skies in tranquil contemplation. The final track of the album Great Deadener is understandably epic; the listener by now is mesmerized as sombre hooks tingle the back of your spine, as feather light percussion trickle along leaving indelible deer footprints in the snow.
The music paints pictures, no visual aids are required."
4/5 - Richard Wink -

Demoed the album back in July 2008 in Winsley Studios, Emsworth. Then hooked up with our friend Joe to do the album proper. Put down the drums in Morcheeba's old place - Back Passage Studios in Clapham. Went on a tour with Monsters Build Mean Robots, then started doing the guitars in Lower Barn Studios, Haslemere. Recorded the piano on a beautiful grand in Creame Studios, London. Dan at Escape Route Studios mastered it. We got Joe Worthington in again for the album design

Somewhere during all this the studio in Haslemere got struck by lightning which destroyed a load of equipment and the printers sent us 500 completely blank copies of the record. There was a postal strike in there too which lost a master copy. Ah well, we made it in the end...
