FACT Magazine

With this record Laurel Halo has created a strong work that, while being notable and challenging for its unusual, compact combination of pop, ambience and musique concrète, is also immersive and enjoyable for this exact reason.

Pitchfork

My experience with Quarantine feels more like an interactive, multimedia affair, as though I'm listening to a record while simultaneously trying to solve a puzzle or challenge the CPU in a video game.

Beats Per Minute

This is probably among the most original and enigmatically seductive albums we’ll hear all year, and that itself is certainly an achievement worth celebrating.

Su mejor material, por lejos. Laurel Halo despliega lo mejor de su voz para lograr hermosas melodías abrazadas de un ambiente con sonidos jóvenes y modernos, para dar como resultado una pieza tan solida como excelente, como extrañamos tu voz Laurel.

A very uncomfortable and depressing album.
Very open and honest, very emotional.
I liked it a lot; at some times though I felt it got a bit exaggerated for my liking, but it kept it's cool more often than not.
