AllMusic Review by

Edison Suit consists of producers Barry Wood and Mark Smith, a couple of guys who seem unafraid of experimenting and stretching themselves a little -- they certainly do that here, wending their way from pulsing synthesizer-scapes to epic guitar work and back again, demonstrating in the process that their work has been criminally overlooked over the years. Fans of Chapman Stick playing might do well to check out the work that this pair have been doing. The music itself is impressively multi-layered, often growing quite dense yet never falling prey to confusion -- an impressive feat. They're also not afraid of getting laid-back and opening things out, as happens on the dreamy "Straylight." They're worth tracking down.
