"as much as I enjoyed the first two Secret Machines discs I paused before I purchased this disc... I thought to myself... it can't be as good as... it just won't be great... (I was wrong) what an amazing experience listening to this music is - that's right - it's an experience. I don't care about the brothers or the break-up or the press or the sales or any of that. This recording stands alone as a master work and should be regarded as such. I can't believe the depth of emotion and color and space that moves through this performance of a disc. It's so good and so powerful that it's quietest calmest moments are as stunning and moving as the big beats and the thundering grooves... (Again) This is Master Work - and I don't feel that or experience that often enough in pop music... It's like NOTHING else going on right now"
