What The Critics Said

All critic scores are converted to a 100-point scale. If a critic does not indicate a score, we assign a score based on the general impression given by the text of the review. Learn more...

Alternative Press
Its sweeping cinematic scope and all-instrumental tracks recall the lushness of Orbital in their prime. [Oct 2002, p.86]
An impressive artistic debut. [Oct 2002, p.96]
The album will wear thin on short-attention-spanned listeners who need their dance albums dosed with a bit more variety. [Aug 2002, p.79]
Q Magazine
As a cohesive armchair trance soundtrack, Airdrawndagger is a clear success. [Sep 2002, p.106]
E! Online
This bummer sounds more in league with Yanni than Moby.

The Onion (AV Club)
Airdrawndagger fades so listlessly into the annals of anonymity.

This album is one of Sasha's masterworks in my opinion, allthough there are some portions that I tend to skip through, this album is excellent fluffy bliss in the clouds.

Phil S gave it a 10:
I'm glad I'm not a critic so I don't look like an idiot when I try to review music I can't understand.

Aaron C gave it a 10:
all of these critics are idiots. This cd is one of the best cds ever. It is so complex and well put together, i have never heard anything as beautifual and unique as sashas airdrawndagger release. It is like nothing else you have ever heard. I will tell you, this album does require deep listening as you will notice different sounds and how they go together everytime you listen to it. Lay back relax and really listen to all of the sounds and how they really go together and i guarantee you will grow to love this cd more than any other in your collection

Greg G. gave it a 10:
These people don't know what they're talking about, absolutely one of the best "electronic" albums out there.
