CRITIC REVIEWS

The Skinny

Built from almost intangible elements, Wilderness of Mirrors’ aural scree is equal parts harmony and discord. Its inarguable aesthetic makes for a listening experience as unsettling as it is exhilarating.

Drowned in Sound

In contrast with the wide array of drone artists who prefer more static approaches to composition, English can truly be discerned as a composer as well as an arranger.

Wilderness Of Mirrors provides satisfying proof that there is still plenty of value, purpose and life left at the margins.

Tiny Mix Tapes

Wilderness Of Mirrors is tiring, drawn-out, forceful noise that dwells on discomfort and our (compulsory?) readiness to ignore it.

FACT Magazine

Drone albums are by their nature immersive, but it’s rare to come across one so tempestuous, evocative and compelling from start to finish as Wilderness of Mirrors.

Pitchfork

Wilderness of Mirrors isn't groundbreaking in general, but it is new territory for the often-cerebral English, and he puts an engaging, commanding stamp on this style of ambient overdrive hymn.
