CRITIC REVIEWS

Exclaim!

With Bécs, Fennesz achieves the near-impossible, crafting a musical sequel that retains the energy, vision and flow of its predecessor.

AllMusic

The loving layers of static, submerged guitar progressions, and effortless meshes of naturalistic themes and glitchy processing all play into a language of sound distinct to Fennesz and reaching some of their clearest articulations here.

Tiny Mix Tapes

At points, listening to Bécs is to hear gauze become gossamer, and feel it too.

Pitchfork

The sense of composition and sound design is strong, and these tracks complement each other and make a coherent whole even if no two sound the same.

Sputnikmusic

There aren't many artists who can deconstruct and rebuild such interesting tracks equally based on both disturbing and exquisite soundscapes, yet Fennesz continues his winning streak.

☆☆☆½ ~ An inspiringly remarkable album. I feel intensely engaged with this consistent and deeply satisfying music in a wholly compelling unique way.

Ambient landscapes that combine noise with calmness.
A strange combination that creates excitement.
