“Cousin Silas admits being inspired by the bizarre writings of H.P. Lovecraft, and it’s a thrill to hear a musician really get it right. The sense of dread, suspense and imminent danger is only lifted when clearly intentional – on tracks like ‘Looking Back’ and ‘Leaving Solaris’ – and the album ends on an electronic high note with the title track that truly brings closure to the journey. … a surprising discovery and a fascinating journey, indeed” – Connexion Bizarre (the full review can be read at their Web site).

An expansive sparkling and twinkling ocean of sound… one of the dreamiest slabs of late night / early morning ambience we’ve heard in ages. So lovely!” – Aquarius Records
