"...superbly produced album that intensifies the imagination as you float endlessly within its internal fluid & atmospheric beauty." Collective Thoughts

"...'Don't Open Till Doomsday' has an odd character, sometimes sensual and earthly while other times it's like a lone abandoned spaceship floating in the immensity of space. This may be related to the fact that the voice constitutes the organic component while the electronic ambience and rhythmic accompaniments are melancholic, cold & opaque in contrast." Heathen Harvest.

"...a 'kaleidoscope of electronic melancholia - music for astronauts, aliens, and all marginal beings living at the frontiers.' In many ways, this is the best description anyone could give this strange, beautiful record. Like a kaleidoscope, it seems to be in a constant state of flux, with the sound shifting almost imperceptibly as it works its way into the mind." Beatwire.

"...Contrary to the title, Alien Skin's debut CD is a serene and peaceful journey through mellow and surreal soundscapes. Doomsday may be a metaphor for the introverted lyrics and mood of the songs as a whole. If sad songs of longing and despair are your thing, then you will love this. The vocals are very similar to Depeche Mode's Martin Gore and the songs more than borrow the sound style of Mr. Gores first solo EP. This is a very good thing depending on wether you are a fan of that classic disc. The standout tracks on this release are "Saviour" and "It doesn't matter". Listen to those two tracks and you will get a good idea of the potential this promisisng new artist has. In closing, if you're a fan of romantic or gothic synthpop, I recommend you pick this disc up." Amazon

Includes BONUS track '1000 Feet Below' recorded during the album sessions. This bonus (TRACK #11) is a download only and NOT on the CD.
