Great ENSEMBLE PEARL review in The Quietus



"And (here comes the slightly grumpy old man bit) no-one will pay that much attention to(Ensemble Pearl) because, well, it's just drone guys doing another drone album, and it's not a real talking point LP made by an arty synth pop duo who aren't shy of talking critical theory and entitlement politics. It's just a shame, that's all, because it doesn't matter what kind of music you put 'Giant' next to, it remains quite literally sublime – i.e. it creates a stirring sense of awe and fear in the listener, by creating an abstract representation of a facet of nature that we are right to be humbled by and terrified of: giant oceanic waves." —John "Menk" Doran
