– “Liquid’s signature trumpet blasts right before the track’s conclusion, but for the most part he lets the song coast on a background groove, relying on a landscape of fizzing synthesizers and ghostly piano outro for maximum effect.” — Pitchfork
– “A jazz man and multi-instrumentalist by trade, Liquid utilizes his firm grasp on theory to weave in and out of modal transitions his button-pushing contemporaries wouldn’t dare touch.” – The Untz
