What the press/others have said..., 16 Mar. 2009
"Having spent nearly five years honing their art before introducing it to a studio you'd expect Adoration to be the complete article and you'd certainly not be disappointed. This is rich, mesmerising music to catch your attention in quieter moments. Possessed of immense depth, it's full of texture and quality, amounting to a genuine beauty that is born of fine songwriting and attention to detail. Each of the nine tracks brings a new focus, Slowmotion a whirling merry-go-round that contrasts with the enchanting Same As It Ever Was, a song that pulses on a teetering, unforgettable hook. Allow these deathlike lullabies to take you on a trip."
Total Guitar magazine:
"Miss the ice-cold metal of the Sisters Of Mercy and The Mission? Your next best bet is Adoration. Epic soundscapes recall the best of the 80s goth scene along with more than a touch of The Cure. Plangent guitars and big choruses are all over Sleepwalking: you can almost smell the dry ice."
What other people think:
"I love this kind of sophisticated darkish pop, so much so that were I not fortunate enough to be getting a complimentary copy, I'd be buying it!" - Julianne Regan (All About Eve)
"Perfectly designed for it's genre and wonderfully produced, these are songs to set sail to by night. Admirers of The Cure, Cocteau Twins & The Mission would be foolish to miss this record." - Miles Hunt (The Wonder Stuff)
"Rich, dark, textural and emotive." - Roger O'Donnell (formerly of The Cure)
