First concert review by Chris Whitehead, Reach Provo

Album review from Korean music critic @komeda.tistory.com (excerpts translated from Korean):
"...a high degree of perfection in the visualization of the delicate texture of the sound produced...as well as the musical image of the message that they wanted to include throughout the album.
Their unique post-rock sound and narrative are impressive. Late night, even at low volume, the sound that fills the room is very satisfying. It's a musical pleasure to feel."

Excerpts from our first album review (translated from Russian) :
"...start the music, close your eyes and see...you'll create your own scenes from the gloomy pages of human civilization. It will be "silent film", accompanied by the sublime, sad and mournful music. A minimalist rehearsal of soft melodies, dynamic cascading builds, gripping tremolo guitars, a steady solemn beat of drums, sweeping ambient textures and meaningful sample programming (including fragments of military radio intercepts, speeches by Neville Chamberlain and Ronald Reagan, quotations from Leo Tolstoy, Thomas Hardy and Wilfred Owen)."
"...the "cinema" you will see will be new and all your own. "Once We Knew the World Well" - a moody work, emotional and expressive, very listenable, and in its stylistic niche clearly competent. For fans of post-rock and instrumental soundtrack music, it's definitely worth a try." - Igor Gorelyi, R.A.I.G Records (click here for full article).
