The Ringmaster review:
"Desolate Angels is the eagerly awaited sophomore release from Soundscapism Inc., a highly anticipated successor to a debut which made a potent and well-received impact on the European post rock scene. The new offering is sure to emulate, indeed surpass the success of its predecessor with its even more accomplished, imaginative, and warmly haunting adventure."
"If there´s a word one can scratch from qualifying Bruno A´s work - both with Vertigo Steps and now Soundscapism Inc. - it is surprise. Because the quality of his music is hardly surprising to anyone anymore. And yet, the musician still manages to raise the bar often. Which is precisely the case with this release. Bruno A. insists in deceiving us by making complex musical weavings sound simple and that is not within everyone´s reach"
Heaven Is Not Too Far review:
‘Desolate Angels’ is a musical exercise which is a pleasure to listen to and that should be embraced by all who have been following the previous works of this composer and multi-instrumentalist, gifted with an extreme work quality and musicality, to which we indeed can not remain indifferent. Fans of current Opeth or Sigur Rós should have this album in mind - and always at hand."
"Between ambient and post rock, the album winds apparently mild and delicate, though entering surreptitiously under the skin after a few listens, and we can not help but fully appreciate the quality in which Desolate Angels is almost coyly performed. "
Lords of Metal review:
"It is very atmospheric and dream-like music, with an engrossing concept about the Icelandic wilderness and existentialism as background. There’s quite some beautiful music on ‘Desolate Angels’, but be aware that it is a very calm record. When you are in the mood for it, it might be a new discovery for fans of Steven Wilson, Anathema, Katatonia or Sigur Rós."
Flight of Icarus review:
"Recording all the instruments and handling the production by himself, he convinces the listener that the balance between electronic and acoustic melodies are representative of his aesthetic, that the dreamy pop music he creates is his own adventure’s soundscape."
