AllMusic Review by

Having helped establish Ollie Jacobs' Memphis Industries imprint as a purveyor of outstanding cinematica, Andy Dragazis followed his widely licensed Nothing Changes Under the Sun debut with a second long-player effort for none other than XL. The resultant 12 tracks are nothing short of astonishing, with Ty Bulmer adding a final vocal flourish to some magnificent music. Lazy labeling is best left alone, as Dragazis has succeeded in creating something of his own, as far from the widely prescribed but hard to pin down "chill-out" tag as it could be, a place where studio-tech trickery and earthly instrumentation collide with what is best described as cinematic majesty.
