Album Review: I Can See a Boat ... It No Longer Floats

"[Dayglo Fishermen] do their best to challenge the listener with leaps from atmospheric prog rock to electro-music pop to trance-induced synthesiser experiments."

"It's multi-layered and slightly pretentious but overall a nice album."

"If you want to imagine yourself floating around on an endless ocean in a tiny nutshell of a boat, get this album."

Album Review: Queen of the Sunset City

"The instrumental backing to all of these tracks sounds good in an '80s sort of way."

"[Ginny Owens] voice is appealing and somehow very English, and people no doubt draw comparisons to Kate Bush when they hear her sing."

Album Review: Queen of the Sunset City

"Ambient Life is a pretty polished piece of work with some great subtle guitar licks, and a great main pad sound."

"There are some polished tracks here that demonstrate a great deal of potential."

Album Review: Queen of the Sunset City

"It is rock with an edge, provided by atmospheric synth and lyrics."

"A melange of sounds and noises, synths and guitar - but there is a structure to it. The more you listen the more you start to appreciate the craft behind the songs."

"Being together for so long has given the band the confidence to keep creating a distinctive and memorable sound that is refreshing but deep enough to offer something new with every listen."

David Hughes, Infection Music September 2003

Album Review: Queen of the Sunset City

"The album sounds really good and very polished and there's more than enough going on to keep the average punter listening."

"The artwork looks stunning."

Album Review: Comet Nerdlinger

"Sorry, but the drum machine sounds rigid and stilted, the vocals are hard to distinguish and... well, do we really have to go on?"

Album Review: Comet Nerdlinger

"Dayglo Fishermen proceed to undertake the most uncinematic of excursions."

"The music is sub-standard Duran Duran drivel, while the vocals are weedy and passionless."

Album Review: Comet Nerdlinger

"Dayglo Fishermen have kept the excitement levels high with their unique, forward-thinking sound."

"A feast of all things abstract which, when combined, serve to fit in with even the mainstream's consciousness."

Album Review: Painting Aliens

"A promising release from a trio that seems to know exactly what it wants and is heading towards it in a big way."

"The opening track tells of an alien encounter and cleverly mixes rock guitar and techno bleeps and an ever-present keyboard wall of sound."

Album Review: Space Dog

"The arrangements are interesting and extremely effective, creating a mood best described as the aural equivalent of time-lapse photography."

Album Review: The Dayglo Fishermen

Album Review: Drenched

"This is the ideal aural backdrop for that last strong one before beddy-byes. Guaranteed to put the cat into a deep trance."

Album Review: Drenched

"They may be 'Drenched' - but definitely not wet, wet, wet!"

"The lads from Hexham have produced a very professional album."
