"Like Wild Beasts’ Hayden Thorpe swooning over a Planet Mu skitter, the record darts between stout kick drums, glitchy shuffles, murky trip-hop and widescreen ambience, at once balmy and chilling, generous and vulnerable." - Crack Magazine
"The slowly unfurling techno-with-soul is reminiscent of the kind of illuminating noise that Caribou puts out. "All Is Love" wields a strong, meaty pulse that you can shake your thang to, but it's also got a warm emotional core." - The Line of Best Fit
"The "M-Band" modus operandi is ethereal and beautiful, but also jarring and unexpected... more like the feeling of the unheimlich than epiphany, more uncanny than numinous." - The Quietus
"[M-Band] glows with sincere illustrations of wistful desire - intense, conscious, and full of nurture... willing to take a listener in with open arms and float to a warm haven." - no fear of pop
"A striking, absorbing, rich and wonderfully dense creation which mirrors the the night in all of its beguiling beauty. The rush and hush, the burning heart of it all... a truly captivating world" - Gold Flake Paint
"A cardinal masterpiece of contemporary music... an audio Sistine Chapel." - Joyzine
"The coordinates of the musical universe of Hörður Már Bjarnason are faith, hope and love... eight tracks in which he dances playfully through space and time, interweaving his almost weightless tenor vocals with bass gravity." - Spex
"A hypnotic sound, gleaned from various corners of contemporary electronica, with songs built from minimal clicking rhythms, washes and whispers of ambient sound, haunting melodies, swells and crescendos" - Ja Ja Ja Music
"An artist who strives to maintain human elements alongside his intricately woven electronic backdrops... Bjarnason’s distinctive vocals lend a tender edge to his work." - Nordic Playlist
