"A collection of moodily gorgeous, slow-paced, sound washes... little here deviates from the absorbing minor-key gloom of albums like 2002's ( )." - npr.org/music

"As much contained symphonies as songs, the eight percussively-spare tracks on Valtari, not one clocking under five minutes, aim angelically heavenward" - state.ie
