"Disc of the Year."
--Deep Listenings magazine, Italy

"Top 25 releases of 1997."
--Bill Binkelman, Wind and Wire magazine

"Top 50 of 1997."
--Chuck VanZyl, Star's End Radio, WXPN, Philadelphia

"Well-thought out drone structures which pull the listener into a pool of rich harmonies and atmosphere dynamics."
--Vidna Obmana

"Griffin's own Sudden Dark is indicative of the label's high caliber. Multicolored waves of electronics gust and billow across stark, forbidden landscapes; sonic blips sometimes appear on the horizon and form disturbing cyclic eddies ("Gyre") while on "Atmosphera," tones that resemble the gradual erosion of heavy metals seep into great aquifers of liquid nitrogen. Griffin's pieces in fact suggest various sorts of placid states and environments ("The Sound of Ringing Sleep," "Immobile," "Displace," "Almost Invisible"), and the closing of one's eyes during the immersion in these environments greatly aid in the actualization of the pieces' titles. Subtle and superfine."
--Darren Bergstein / i/e Magazine
