“I [was] curious to see what it sounded like. The short answer is ‘pretty damn good’. I have had the six tracks on myspace on all day. Just looping round and round. It’s really surprising stuff…The standout track so far is the title track “A Dot Of Black In The Blue Of Your Bliss“, the gritty electronic bass complements the gritty lyrics. This song has been lovingly and carefully assembled. I really like the production.” posted by ‘thatch’ on duggup.com.
