NME wrote: ” ‘A Kiss in the Dreamhouse’ is a feat of imagination scarcely ever recorded. It’s breathtaking. Somehow, a bold assurance of intention has met with a hunger for experimenting with sound to expand an already formidable group of songs into pure, open-minded ambiguity.

Repeated listens trick the sense of balance; tremendous risks are taken.”
