    Selling is an album that to me felt like branches of electronics, constantly moving and evolving, but also as nine trailing individual works that are steady and individual.

    Across its concise 42 minutes they move from shimmering electronics, and sounds akin to techno, to more ambient waves, with each mood laid across a foundation of intricate, textured layers of sound that seem to continually reveal themselves over repeated listens. Blink and you could easily miss a detail, but Selling will keep drawing you back to discover all of their secrets.

    Selling is an inspired project, and On Reflection utilises the best of both artists to produce a project that is fascinating, pretty and groovy all at once: required listening for fans of electronic music.

    Somehow, they manage to keep it engaging from start to finish; then again, that should be no surprise from two artists who rarely run out of ideas.

    The hypnotic techno loop of Dicker's Dream provides forward momentum, though it's the more contemplative moments, from No Reflection's sparkle to Moon In Water's limpid ambience, which shine brightest. [Jan 2019, p.113]

    Overall, this is an album with fleeting moments of joy, but these are not sustained.

    On Reflection can't make any grand claims to originality, but charms with its clarity and light. [Jan 2019, p.25]
