"...& on the few strategic spots in the album where Arnalds drops in drums and/or electric guitar & repetitive motifs, the effect is not dissimilar to the headier moments of the aforementioned Sigúr Ros, or perhaps early-‘70s Pink Floyd at their most ethereal, showing the rock crowd that they too have a point of entry into this music.." (www.allmusic.com)

"...This 23-year-old composer paints a unique fog of fragile melancholy using the tiniest of brushes -- weightless drones, pianos pressed with a feathery touch, bows barely scraping strings, and electronic bliplets that sound like submarines cooing in the murky distance. His second full-length has an impossibly gentle feel that makes fellow Icelandic drift merchants like Sigur Rós and Jóhann Jóhannsson sound downright leaden. Arnalds' game is more ambience than transcendence -- so the four very brief detours into Explosions in the Sky–style post-rock seem all the more cinematic." (http://www.spin.com)
