It's been an incredibly intense experience. He's absolutely one of the greatest lyricists and melody makers I've ever encountered. Amazing riffs, amazing phrases, amazing visions and imaginings... It's been powerful and life-changing to explore his shadow powers.
The strength of Half-Speed Mastered that might not come through at first listen is that its seemingly random mess of strange sounds and its wild combinations are completely considered and sculpted with intention and control. Listening closely, it's easy to see that it'd be impossible to accidentally create something this astonishingly weird and yet surprisingly engaging.
—Fred Thomas, All Music Guide
...one of the weirdest and consequently one of the best albums of 2013
