"Kate Bush crossed with Brian Eno might hint at what to expect here, but it wouldn't convey the full range of musical idioms blended by this duo..but they are no dabblers. Every musical language they draw on serves the quality and meaning of the song in question. Smart lyrics that treat sex, spirituality and perception in serious and funny ways; and alot of the music's appeal is in the spell cast by Kadushin's silky vocals, the clever arrangements behind them and the meticulous production.

"Lythion knows how to balance style and substance, they are adventurous and impressively original." -Alex Henderson-(All Music Guide)
