Ken Goodey I've had the track Western Horn on a playlist since this release came out - downloaded it from somewhere, possibly even legally - and finally getting to listen to the whole album was a real joy. Only problem is that at 35 minutes, this album is too bloody short! I think this is a wonderful collaboration that could have and should have delivered more material. Terrestrials feels like side one of at least a full album, if not a double. Favorite track: Western horn.

Regnārs Breikšs Undeniably distinctive from other of their releases. It feels that they have continued from the point where "Alice" from "Monoliths & Dimensions" have left off. This record does not dwell in the lowest register extensively and instead of being a deep, dark and visceral experience, it seems to take you places that are far and wide, and surprisingly colorful. Favorite track: Eternal return.

comaunite I think this is the most interesting and unusual, and at the same time approachable Sunn O))) release to date. I think they work really well with Ulver. Must have! Favorite track: Let there be light.

William Wright A collaboration with results not unlike the Wolves in the Throne Room album "Celestite". Orchestrated and beautiful. Favorite track: Let there be light.

Wez Barber Love this so much. Each song opens like the petals of a flower revealing strange intoxicating smells and alluring images. Aural bliss.

a seared red sea
dead history is
delivered and divided
in the line of the nile
pythagorean egypt
raised the house
of hades and the dead
opened the book
in sinai sin is a
golden nature
a liminal animal
existing in exile
for forty years
the desert rests
listen silent
let the letters tell
