Davis I love the chill vibe of Hang Garden and the instrument choices. I love that about all the songs, too. I love many things. Favorite track: Hang Garden.

グリゴリオース Stirring melodies; helped me focus on studying.

This will always be part of my soundtrack to leaving home. Favorite track: Circadies.

Michael Reilly Detailed and complex electronic passages filled with an impressive list of diverse instrumentation. Downtempo and ultimately very stylish. Favorite track: Whispers.

Nikki VanderBurg I'm really caught between Radio and Hang Garden for which one I enjoy most. But that's something hard to say, when each track is suited to completely different moods and states of mind. I suppose I just need to share my love for the very different flavor in each track, here. Thank you. Favorite track: Raido.

Fadem I hear new things every time I listen to this album - and I cannot stop listening to it as of late! Very hard to pick a favorite, as all songs are excellent! Favorite track: The Balance.

Ian Silvester The beautiful lightness of touch on this record. A stately electronica waltz - you don't see many of those! Benet Walsh doesn't show up often, but his every collaboration is golden. Favorite track: Napolese.
