 "...an intense sounding soundscape of an album - mournful in places, uplifting in others, but utterly glorious throughout...Listen to it. Wallow in it. Bathe in it. This is gorgeous stuff..." - Album review for BBC Introducing - Stephen Morris
"Trust the cutting guitars in the terrific single 'Departure', take them as a first guidepost and you will enter the dark, black world, which the album-title 'The Shapes We Fear Are Of Our Own' already hints..." - Andreas (SoundMag.De) - 7/10 - ALBUM OF THE WEEK
"...a majestically epic sound to rival even the aforementioned Icelandic outfit (Sigur Ros)... is surely one of the darkest, most haunting albums you are likely to hear all year..."
"…This will be their landmark album, as it’s so brilliantly sculptured, so alive with sound and emotion, and touches on so many levels…this is Motion Picture Soundtrack, dramatic, glorious and epic… - Album Review by Mica Jones - INDIE-STRY
“…executed with such visceral aplomb and utterly expert production values that it could so easily be mistaken for an experienced group’s recording for a major label… surely a group as accomplished as this Kent quartet deserve recognition…” - Album review for 'The Shapes We Fear Are Of Our Own' 4 / 5 – LastBroadcast.co.uk

"Big, bold and clever sums up this remarkable album from Motion Picture Soundtrack…this album is powerful, putting a lot of top selling artists to shame and is something to come back to again and again, whenever you feel the need to get lost and totally consumed by the beautiful music…" - Album review for 'The Shapes We Fear Are Of Our Own' 10 / 10 – The Gig Guide
