The album received a rave recommendation on 5-against-4:
‘it just so happens to be one of the best ambient albums ever made • What sets it apart from pretty much all other ambient music is the depth of compositional understanding & level of technical excellence that Adkins brings to all his projects • But the beauty of it all—!—i can honestly say i really haven’t heard an album as incredibly beautiful as this in years—its intricately-made soft structures are stunning to behold.’
