"The Edges of Everything is a deep and dark soundscape from Farfield, nee Nick Webb. He uses all manner of electronics to mold and manipulate this set. The atmospheric ambience is dense. The eerie samples take it over the edge. This disc is hard to describe and easy to like. The synth riffs are catchy; the samples are interesting; the orchestral passages are dreamy. But the emotional response is somewhere out in left field. there is a response. It is just not overt. The darkness is not scary. The orchestration is not pastoral. The soundscape is not ambiguous. It is ambivalent. This is a masterful sound design. Nick has created a soundscape that goes both ways. That is a rare response!"

"This is the
first ambient album I've heard in a long time that seems to return to
something of the simplicity of Brian Eno's Another Green World and Discrete
Music. It is a CD to put on in the early hours of the morning when the
world is quiet and still; its quality of gentle insistence invariably
gets you focusing inside the texture to tease out the progress of a particular
sound or instrument."
