GOLDENPLEC.ie "Conjuring images of a dystopian future of paranoia, chaos and uncertainty, This Other Kingdom’s heady cocktail of neo psychedelic space rock is one to lose yourself in."
"This Other Kingdom’s haunting backing harmonies and atmospheric keyboard flourishes give the songs distinctive touches"
"This Other Kingdom, wastes no time in making an impact like the recent meteor which hurtled over Russia. Similar to that astrological phenomenon there is an epic quality to their music."
Music Review Unsigned: "will slip nicely into playlists for those long summer festival trips." "6/6. With an old-school appeal and an unconventional sound, This Other Kingdom are highly recommended for those who like their rock music outside the ordinary."
the-Arcade.ie: "efficient collection that gets the job and done and leaves, which, at a time when other indie and alternative acts are producing self-indulgent noodling around under the banner of “experimentation”, is a very welcome thing." "a welcome injection of difference into the 21st Century indie scene."
"an unrelentingly intense atmosphere it’s impossible to deny"
