AllMusic Review by

The New York noise guitar player steps further into the world of drone-minimalism with this recording, producing symphonic clouds of ecstatic noise with his instrument. As if in a vacuum, the six strings seem to continuously build toward an imminent crescendo that never comes. Equal parts rock & roll spirit and serious minimalism, on Rabbi Sky the traffic-guitar noise of Sonic Youth meets the monochromatic sensibility of Steve Reich, making a hypnotic album that grows with repeated listens, each time revealing a new layer of texture within its wash of guitar noise.
