'The nine songs on the album are an unapologetic exploration of sadness and death. - The songs take a hard look at difficult emotions, and expose for scrutiny something that we are all dealing with as we seek to inhabit our shrunken worlds and understand how we can deal with pent up feelings while managing to exist. whence, the is an album of songs for our time, holding out the faint but persistent hope that colour will return to our lives, and we will be able to tear ourselves away from the details that swim disconcertingly into focus as we gaze around us.' (The Quietus)

'Futurism played through a rusty kaleidoscope with layered synths pulsing on top of one another and Lamb’s vocal crying out like the great great grandson of Reginald Perrin. - All the kitchen-sink charm of a Jarvis Cocker demo and the deadpan delivery of a Dorian Cox delivery. Thirty Pounds of Bone is one of those artists that makes music for the sheer pleasure of it and that richness comes through in the music so this is well worth immersing yourself in as the world spins on.' (Listen With Monger)

'Johny Lamb, continues to challenge himself. - everything is in the moment, the electronics and drones, variously dense and light, enfolding the guitars, brass and drums. It’s soaked in sadness and melancholy - Experimental but equally delicate and intimate, folk with a cosmic sheen and a human heart, from whence it stems.' (FolkRadioUK)
