"Orchid adds seven spellbinding new pieces to the anthéne catalog, each a study in ambient guitar alchemy, beautiful sound shapes, and discreet use of textural elements which all coalesce to sustain a deeply introspective and nostalgic mood. This one might be his most beautiful yet." - Stationary Travels

"Picture the lushest of green mixes of pasture and foliage as you try to find the merest spot of shade where you can slurp your half-melted ‘99’ and that’s the essence of this cd. You may even glimpse a faint sparkle of light glinting off a distant burbling brook (or beck). Synths drone heavily, then inertly, then listlessly. It’s music that sounds tired but happily so. It relaxes after a long walk up a big hill then sits contentedly in the shadow of a big old rock. It’s kinda nice and I am really looking forward to dozing off to it in the suntrap at the back of my house." - Norman Records

"subtly aligned arrangements evoke tangible emotions and enduring sonic images. Orchid is sublime, pathos-laden and exuberant, yet it never crosses the line, and successfully avoids being pretentious or concealing." - Can You Ear It?
