AllMusic Review by

Dean Roberts' third LP under the White Winged Moth moniker expands from his previously sparse guitar constructions into more atmospheric territory -- the record uses percussion, cello, zither, and found sounds to create a beautiful ambient hum. The amazing thing -- and the thing that makes all of White Winged Moth's work so appealing -- is the fact that Roberts' soundscapes never seem abstract at all -- even at their most processed, all of Ribbon Arcade's tracks have human presence and a sense of organization that keeps them from seeming at all intellectualized.
