Richard Hammond Wonderful- I’ve always thought that Eno’s statement that ambient should be ‘ignorable as it is interesting ‘ should be the yardstick by which ambient music is judged. Robert Davies achieves this admirably....

Berkdrums I'm totally hooked on Dataobscura.. Thanks to Duff Egan.., I read a lot of Robert Davies & APK-reviews from him, and then things started to roll so to speak... At this moment River's Edge is absolutely my favorite Robert Davies-album. It's as if I'm in a boat, floating slowly through the river.. & this stunning album tells the story about the life and nature that's surrounding it.. It buzzes, breaths, floats, twinkles.. I love it out there...(& Thanks Duff) Favorite track: Wreathed in Willows.

Rob Clay Peaceful, calm, relaxing - like all the best ambient albums should be. "Turn off your mind relax and float downstream" Favorite track: Wreathed in Willows.

Duff Egan Robert Davies is perhaps my favorite contemporary artist. Every record is a sonic existential jungle safari of mystery and peace with a unique path through the infinite of the sub-conscious. Wreathered in Wilows sends shivers down my spine and helps me to know that the soul is eternal. Thank you and I eagerly look forward to the next. Favorite track: Wreathed in Willows.

In the words of Robert Davies:

I have always found a special peace and calm near the edge of water. It is a very special and shifting boundary. River's Edge is a continuation of my ever-elusive search for a detailed, human definition of natural landscapes through sound representation. The music is meant as a non-intrusive background tapestry, conducive to a relaxed and reflective mood.
