"Whispering trees, lazy crawling trains, and soft boiled rain drops are just some of the colorful and abstract elements that dance behind my eyelids when I listen to an album by Henrik Jonsson. The Swedish producer from Gothenburg collects lo-fi beats and left-field experimental sounds that swish among flanged hits and phase through filtered sweeps. Jonsson effortlessly blends modern classical into folktronica into ambient into a style categorized only as his own. The dreamlike soundscapes sprinkled with background subliminal heartbeats and soul-sinking dysphoric melodies transform me into a child who is eavesdropping on a live improvised folk concert in a beautiful country through a digital seashell with dangling electrodes. Can you picture a shop on the edge of a forest that sells the products comprising of this artist's name? SPLAT! "..my lovely wife, Becky... She's back there multitasking as usual...""

"I bought this album after reccommendations based on my liking of Helios, Xela, Autechre, and other ambient electronica. Unfortunately, it's a real let down. There are a couple of pleasant ambient numbers and a couple of tuneful classical pieces but aside from that there seems to be a lot of 'padding'. A lot of the tracks are so short they become pointless, and a number of the songs employ somewhat irritating percussion. I am also concerned about the recording quality of this album. Listening to it using decent headphones there is a lot of background hiss. I don't know if this is intentional or due to poor quality recording but it is certainly annoying. Sad really, because the guy clearly has potential but this would have been better as a short EP."
