The Wall Street Journal gave an early review to Bonobo’s Migration, stating that the album is “a tranquil, contemplative recording that projects a feeling of misty melancholy.”

Pitchfork gave Brian Eno’s Reflection a 7.7, stating that the new release “feels the most pensive of his ambient works, flowing across 54 unbroken minutes. ”
