CRITIC REVIEWS

80
AllMusic

With seventh album Nightmare Ending, Cooper drifts into his tenth year with the project in grand style, presenting a double album and arguably his finest moment. 

80
PopMatters

Mostly Nightmare Ending serves as an impressive, simultaneously broad and cohesive reminder and restatement of all the sides of Cooper’s work as Eluvium.

80
Spin

Nightmare Ending may not be Cooper's most cohesive record, but it's a perfect representation of the indie-rock generation's most diverse ambient musician.

musicOMH

Nightmare Ending, like Cooper’s best work, combines orchestral shoegaze with ambient piano-led tracks to create a shimmering, worthwhile listen from front to back.

78
Sputnikmusic

Nightmare Ending manages to be Eluvium’s most evocative and interesting work to date.

78
Pitchfork

It's a long glorious exhalation of energies not actually dissipated, as it seemed for a while, but only multiplying in force under suppression.

70
Consequence of Sound

By filling two discs with what he does best, Cooper evolves his sound without forcing it. Sometimes you need to couch the new in the comfortable; sometimes you need to retrace every step before you can take the first step forward.

70
Drowned in Sound

There are a lot of great tracks on Nightmare Ending but it is hard not to feel that it is slightly less than the sum of its parts.
