  2. 8.0 |   Exclaim

    Intimate and alienating; friendly and mysterious; and, most importantly, a whole lot of eerie fun for any listener interested in experimental music

  7. 7.0 |   The 405

    At the end of the day, this is a compelling addition to the Constellation ouvre, and there’s plenty to love here for fans of any moment of Menuck’s wonderful last 20+ years in recorded music

  9. 6.0 |   Uncut

    Robbed of Godspeeds's crescendos, a melancholy gloom dominates. Print edition only
