sincerity and innocence of Po’s music is refreshing,
and the absence of irony isn’t unwelcome either, with titles
alone telling the album’s story. Crunchy electronic beats,
bright filigrees of acoustic guitar, tinkling bells, harp-like
strums, cellos all come together in ten folktronic evocations.
...One sometimes hears traces of Manual’s epic grandeur in
Po’s music, but the material is surprisingly less derivative
than one might have expected. Admittedly, the album distinguishes
itself more in the area of textural sound design than compositional
writing but nonetheless remains a release that earns its recommendation.-
...Summer Silence acts as both something
to focus attention on and as background soundtrack, and is equally
compelling in either setting. If nothing else, this may be the
most soothing album to be released in 2007, being an excellent
soundtrack to a rainy afternoon, the sunshine in its grooves sure
to drive the clouds away. - IGLOOMAG.COM.
