Entertainment Reviews:

Down Beat - 4/97, p.58
4 Stars (out of 5) - "...Brian Ales' captivating second CD belongs in both world music and jazz bins. Even though his percussive, ambient soundscapes are full of...ethnic instruments...each piece has an integrity of its own instead of being a hodgepodge of contrived music....Bonus points for Ales' short guitar meditations throughout."
Dirty Linen - 12/97-1/98, p.80
"...The album has the warmth and immediacy of a live jazz session and the atmospheric richness of a film score. Far too assertive and mind-pricking for background music,...HABIT would be a good choice for the insomniac artist who doesn't really want to sleep anyway."
