    "A record of dark, intense melody driven tunesmithery that oozes atmosphere." (Fused Magazine)

    "Their brilliant debut album is a mesmerizing journey which will have you captivated from start to finish." (L107FM, featured artist of the week)

    "The band's sound is... what might happen if Lou Reed and H. P. Lovecraft met in a pub one dark and gloomy night and decided to form a band. Some of the most hauntingly-poetic lyrics ever to grace a debut - or for that matter, platinum - album." (Music4M)

    "Near perfect gorgeous plainsong harmonies...lush," (Spill)

    "Blew me away, absolutely stunning... one of the best albums of 2006. Should be played up and down on every alternative station around the globe. So much atmosphere, I hardly could believe it... breathtaking; it's so irresistible and catchy (they) must have sold their souls to the devil." (Kontrast FM Radio)

    "Dark, melodic tunesmiths," (The Guardian)

    "Melody-drenched indie pop," (Time Out)
