AllMusic Review by

With its layering of guitar drifts, vocal delay, and voice samples that can rival early Verve, it's quite impressive that All About Satellites and Spaceships was recorded without the aid of an expensive recording studio or major record label. Besides its obvious love for minimalism, Seven Percent Solution's specialty is its ability to transcend a quiet verse into a passionate chorus. The whispery vocals often get swept up into the current, but always sound comfortable among the sounds of confusion. Toward the middle of the record (namely the psychedelic "Your Kingdom, Your World"), All About reaches a zenith, as guitar notes sound like transmissions from another galaxy. And just when you think the band has had its last breath, it comes back for yet another five-minute journey into pure space rock bliss.
