"Beautiful, weightless music, miraculously open, loose and inviting. Like Russell's World Of Echo LP from the same era, this music is as natural as breathing, and once heard, almost as necessary."
- The Wire, Issue 364, May 2014.
"The music itself is a beautiful melding of acoustic timbres with a repetitive flow, maintaining a lyric narrative that is absent in the work of a lot of the current minimalist fashionistas. Ruyle's tabla work sparkles over the thrashing rhythms of Ahmed's percussion, while the rest of the ensemble chants a seamless liturgy throughout. Lateral Pass is a lovely testament to Arthur Russell's influence and Zummo's penchant for modernity."
– Exclaim! (8/10)
"This year's most beautiful record."
– Nik Colk Void of Factory Floor
