"Playing such unpredictably meshed music must be a totally absorbing experience. Listening to it at a distance, a degree of detachment is inevitable. Hearing No Stars Please is like taking a walk and noticing things, with room for noticing other things when taking the same walk later. The musicians are not out to flaunt their technique, but to enjoy the plurality of options available when they get together to organise sound. It's not a showcase for virtuosity but a record of shared investigations and an auditory environment for occasional use."
Julian Cowley, The Wire
