Review excerpt by Aural Aggravation (via the label):

"with segments of monologue and dialogue chopped up and scattered, sometimes overlapping with one another as well as the musical backing, which isn't exactly musical or backing, so much as a shimmering, shifting sonic collage, if not exactly reminiscent of William Burroughs' audio experiments, then very much a sonic interpretation of the cut-up technique in its simultaneous representations of multiple events and perspectives. Every moment is a moment of change and the pieces on the stilling are constructed around a continual shift, it's disorientating by design. Scrambling the mutter lines, it's the soundtrack to your soundtrack."

Review excerpt by The Quietus  (via the label):

'Last year's distinctive debut from drøne was likened to a hurtling journey. It's combination of field recordings, shortwave radio and modular synths possessed an excited, driving energy whose route was hitherto unexplored and destination unknowable. But with an expanded sound pool boasting instruments across the ages - from guitar, through pipe organ and strings to dulcimer and psaltery – its follow-up takes a sideways step into more cognizant, reflective pastures.'"
