Reviews:

"High quality re-release from avant-shoegazers. Eternity Road is an impressive, passionate collection, Bauhaus-bleak yet complex as jazz. Makes Radiohead sound like Nizlopi" (Uncut, 05/2006)

"Profound, melancholic, and reaches the parts more ephemeral pieces of plastic cannot reach" (Melody Maker)

"A good introduction - but not all you'll ever need - to a band deserving of care and attention" (NME)

"Atmospheric and claustrophobic, music to sharpen razor blades to" (M8)

"A gorgeous full swell of sound" (Melody Maker)

"Eternity Road collates singles and other highlights from an eventful six-album career making a solid case for their own chapter in the dreampop story. Recommended for fans of slow, eerily atmospheric songs and dense production" (Leonard's Lair, 03/2006)

"Culty dream-pop rightfully remastered and reissued" (The List, 03/2006)

"Absolutely beautiful cult band - dreamy, melancholic wave songs, and a must for all fans of 1980s guitar bands like The Sound and The Chameleons" (transmission.com, 04/2006)
