John-Coulthart-Feuilleton-five in a row

John Coulthart writes about the album at his feuilleton site:

“…extended drones and atmospherics by regular contributors Polypores and Time Attendant alternate with contemporary takes on the folk idiom by Magpahi, Sproatly Smith, and The Hare And The Moon… this is another potent collection which doesn’t ignore the sinister potential of winter time…”

Music-Wont-Save-You-raffaello russo-5 in a row

Raffaello Russo has written about the album from over the seas at his Music Won’t Save You site:

““All The Merry Year Round” appare senz’altro la raccolta più varia e, in fondo, leggera nel catalogo recente dell’etichetta inglese, che sotto le insegne del mistero e della magia unisce declinazioni antiche e moderne della cultura popolare del periodo più buio dell’anno.”
