"This CD starts off with the aptly named 23 minute opus "Slow Fall Inward." A low frequency synthesizer drone shifts and morphs throughout the piece while distant high pitched wails, like the voices of shrieking banshees, punctuate the soundscape. Perfect music for pondering your failures and regrets. Perfect music for wallowing in the pain of your broken heart. Perfect music for plotting revenge on your enemies. Perfect music for worrying about whether or not there is a hell. Perfect, crushing, dark ambience. If you have suicidal tendencies, this will be the last piece of music you hear."
For Slow Fall Inward alone

"I've been listening to ambient for
a long time - since the mid 1980's.
As my tastes evolved and changed, I found
that I liked the music that was more
geared towards the 'introspective' than the
'feel good' [I'm not knocking the feel-good
stuff, in fact, I have nothing but praise from
stalwart geniuses such as Deuter, whose work
seems to bear his own zen]. But my
cup of tea these days is a 'dark one'. This album
isn't perfect, but it is dark and cavernous and
is one of the most sublime efforts I've heard from
Lull, in fact, I'd say this album is their best, imo.
Slow Fall Inward is just magnificent. It's a long walk
on a deserted beach at night, one hears the cries of
strange creatures and a continual rush of the sea under
an eerie sky, oceanic and unique. It's a top-shelf,
top-tier piece of brooding ambient work.
That is my 'professional' opinion! If you recognize
the gem of ambient that is Robert Rich/Lustmord's
Stalker cd, you should be able to hear your way clearly
on this work which, though not nearly as engaging as Stalker
over all (sorry Lull), is a tight little addition to your
collection of music to brood by. Highly recommended."
Slowly Fall Into Lull

"I don't know much about Lull, come to think of it, I first stumbled upon Lull in a hearts of space chatroom, my friend told me to buy this CD and see how I liked it.
I was skeptical, mainly because at the time my favourite album was "A Hundred Days Off" by "Underworld," almost the opposite of Lull in Electronica.
But when it finnaly arrived, I was amazed with the music.
"Slow Fall Inward" depicts an eerie field... You're just kind of, floating across it... The wind blows... You hear strange noises...
It can be a little creepy, even in the daytime.
"Lonely Shelter" depicts a dark cabin, no one is home, it is mid-afternoon\dusk, and there is a lot of dust in the air, and sunshine coming inside the cracks in the walls.
There is a feeling of desperation in the cabin, as if some spirit were trapped in it, trying to loose itself.
"Long Way Home" depicts night-time... Walking down a dusty road at first, then after a while... You appear to be walking down a dark dark long hallway, very slowly... You cannot see what is infront of you, or behind you, but you hear noises, all the time, causing you to look up, down, and all around...
"Lost Sanctum" depicts a dark forest, where there are some train tracks, there is a feeling of death and blood in this area, and it is not the kind of place you would want to be in the middle of the night.
You hear the train in the distance, and while you are standing here, you look over your shoulder, always expecting something to be standing right there.This album is definatley worth the money, even if you're skeptical, if you're into electronica music, you should definatley get this one."
