The Circular Ruins returns with a totally engaging dossier of sweeping atmospherics, sonic curiosities, and existential depths ... tapping into a rich ambient soundworld you just can't find elsewhere.
"Listening to "Falling Into the Sky", I'm reminded of my belief that Kerby's greatest gift has always been his ability to create a sustained musical environment over the course of a disc. Throughout his musical career, he has made beautiful music that forms a space around the listener, a space rich in depth and nuance that inspires further exploration and investigation as each song flows into the next. "Falling Into the Sky" is a fine example of Kerby's gifts, a collection of music that takes the listener on a journey to a new location to be experienced. As with all of his releases, "Falling Into the Sky" comes highly recommended."

"... Falling Into the Sky, represents both a departure from, and a continuation of, the TCR tradition. The sounds of departure, towards a more expansive sense of weight with less density, may be seen as drawing on APK’s programme for this work – an envisioning of a kind of ineffable lightness of being, one where scientific laws are inverted, where a journey might call forth not action, but a form of escapism, of drifting away. On one level perhaps a metaphysical extension of the early 90s armchair voyager notion of “Travelling without moving”.
"Falling from the Sky, overall, impresses as a substantial work of sonorous reflectivity imbued with a deep melancholy, nevertheless succeeding in enfolding within itself a glimmering luminosity – suggestive of the spirit of humanism in the face of the sky’s supreme indifference at our fall."

"... this is an impressive disc! A suspension of weightless drones, no beats and no rhythm, this is easily the most atmospheric Circular Ruins to date -and as spacious as the photo that graces the CD cover. The prevailing mood here seems to be one of wistfulness and solitude, this is great music for a cloudy winter day. A highlight among the highlights for me is Paracelsus 3, where you seem to be suspended in a stratospheric windstorm, as vaporous snatches of conversation drift past. The sound-effects in this track are incredible.... Of course, this is certainly among the very best discs I've heard this year, and my favorite Circular Ruins disc yet. Highly recommended."
