In another universe altogether... incredible.
nathaniel cramp, NME

Sublimely present music, knowingly spontaneous.
frances may morgan, plan b magazine

RECORD OF THE DAY. Truly amazing. The perfect autumnal into winter soundtrack.
paul brownell, poptones

Creating their own language.
howard byrom, channel 4's ideas factory

This linear avante garde buzzzzzzzzzzzz is a strange, appealing din. Like Cage, Stockhausen, and Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music, this is head music.
jack rabid, the big takeover

EDITORS CHOICE. An excellent and atmospheric album.
helen tipping, pennyblack music magazine

sonorous magma splashes of delicate magic.
roberto mandolini, losing today

Stunned excursions into inner space.
george parsons, dream magazine #6

A swarm of subterranean brilliance.
jennifer allan, angry ape

Startling.
skif, vanity project #16

The genius of The Telescopes remains unparalleled.
scott causer, astro zombie

One of our top favourite acts. Highly recommended.
baby sue

FEATURED ALBUM. Redefining what is and what isn't considered suitable listening armoury for the avid record collector.
dom gourlay, the downloader

Keeping you on the edge of your seat without ever letting things loose. a pretty nice mixture of damaged folk and gritty psych rock. 7/10.
aaron coleman, almost cool

A rather unique sound pond with heavily psyhedelic moments. always a good melody or contagious trace of rhythm.
tom wilms, gonzo / l'entrepot

A truly masterful trip into the outer reaches of music.
john s, rock-a-rolla

a magically alluring album that I can warmly recommend.
dj astro, psychotropiczone

my only regret is the record lasts a mere 50 minutes. i could bury my head in this sort of caressing fuzzy mix for much, much longer.
tom sekowski, gaz-eta

follow their trajectory today like you'd watch a comet in one of those summer nights: laying on your back with half-open eyelids and a smile, slowly rising your hand to touch the skies while being perfectly aware you can't, because that's part of the beauty.
DDN, empty fanzine

different with each new listening, a little as if it were re-recorded behind our back, every evening, but with always the same poetic load, strong. a little like the book of sand, the infinite fantasmé by borges...
nayn, foutraque

as hypnotized and addictive cobras. here you have the medication for this half of decade as prescribed by the telescopes. the infinite cosmos, Lord!
wilder gonzales agreda, freakout magazine
