"Grier begins this record singing a simple and sweet-voiced a cappella song promising nothing: "Baby, I don't know right now", leaving us curious. He, like Lucrecia Dalt, has spent a lot of time making more conventionally-formed solid songs, but here he goes further than he ever has from straight songwriting. Almost every "song" on this record features one specific recording or field recording that is explored for a while, with a strangely pleasing way of beginning soft and gentle, and growing more and more mysterious (maybe even frightening) as time progresses. As a whole, it's like a series of captivating and mysterious short films."
– Julia Holter, Writing for Artforum International, December 2013
