Spin (p.98) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "MA FLEUR's atmospheric, moody songs and down-tempo arrangements are devoted more to Radiohead-worthy mopiness..."
CMJ (p.98) - "This is easily Cinematic Orchestra's finest hour, its stirring combination of beautiful vocals and transcendent instrumentation solidifying Swinscoe's long-overdue anointing as one of the most cherished composer-arrangers of the modern age."
Down Beat (p.70) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "MA FLEUR hones in on a guilty-pleasure melancholy....Tunes like 'That Home' or 'Breathe' find their arc in ways reminiscent of Coldplay or Moby."
JazzTimes (p.90) - "MA FLEUR immerses you in its sheer sound and invites you to imagine a narrative, and few will be able to resist."
