A truly shining example of what being an ambient album should mean: similarity, not sameness. Reusing feelings, not ideas. In this sense, The Silent Anagram is entirely successful.When given the proper conditions, Telekaster has crafted music to bring you there, to whatever hazy, reverb-laden place that is; just grab a decent pair of headphones, turn down the lights, and take the trip. (The Silent Ballet, September 2009)
Post rock is perhaps a term to fit this, but its all without drums and its definitely not static. This music is in constant flux, always on the move. A great record actually. Very melodic, without becoming a pop record. More modern classical, I'd say. A very pleasant and varied album. Highlight of the week. (Vital Weekly 695)
