"Seed is magnificent. It is devastating in the range of its emotional sweep, humbling in the profundity of the insights it enables and majestic in the way it flawlessly presents a holistic musical experience. This is, without doubt, a contender for album of the decade and should be mandatory listening for anyone who is grappling to understand what it is human beings are capable of doing to each other."
"There's elements of Floyd's Wish You Were Here and The Division Bell in their sound, they also point to Porcupine Tree as another inspiration and there's no denying that Richard Barbieri's keyboard style looms large. At their most sparse, Freedom To Glide also evoke the more soundscape-heavy fare of Barbieri's Rain Tree Crow side project."
"In terms of clarity and depth and a level of musicianship that so very few attain, ‘Rain’ is a near perfect album that should be compulsory listening for progressive fans. A modern classic, Freedom to glide have created a true masterpiece that mingles beauty with sadness over its 63 gorgeous minutes."
"Sounds Like the best bits of mid-late career Pink Floyd"
"I hope you will continue releasing such well-written, well played, and well-thought-out music. Not only is the musicianship and production excellent, your lyrics are literature in their own right. As a teacher of English for many years I often despaired at the poor quality of some bands' lyrics, but yours could be used in class as an example of well written imagery. They paint powerful pictures, and tell a story, which makes the songs powerful and memorable."
"Rain, is a superb album which has music which effortlessly flows throughout the 63 minutes, with swathes of keyboards, stunning lead guitar work, majestic piano passages, catchy acoustic guitar work and that crystal clear powerful voice. Above all, the concept dealing with the futility of war is dealt with sympathetically throughout and it must be one of the most emotionally tinged albums I have heard.... Go out and buy this album, listen to it completely and marvel at what Freedom To Glide have produced."
"Thanks guys. This album is gorgeous and confirms everything I love about prog, diversity, lyrical, musicianship and I love it. I simply have not listened to an album as many times in so short a time since the 70’s."
“The British once again present a perfectly produced album”
