~ DJ Megasoup aka Selaroda ~ I LOVE this album! So warm and blissed out, like a sonic blanket that has obviously been made with the finest organic fibers, and with a ridiculously high thread count. So good...

Josh Augustin I'm endlessly stunned by Benoit Pioulard's musical output, and this album continues that trend. In its gorgeously textured drones, Lignin Poise achieves a perfect balance between the expansive and the nuanced, lending itself to an exceedingly visceral and transporting listening experience. This is everything ambient music can and should be - definitely one of my favorite albums of the year, highly recommended.

Alec L. Critten This record has magic powers. Seriously. As soon as I got it I threw it on the turntable, but accidentally played it at 45 instead of 33. The feeling that came over me was nothing short of amazing - I was in a heavenly trance state. Listening to the record at the normal speed and the feeling's still there. Early contender for ambient album of the year in my book.
And the artwork is beautiful, too. Favorite track: Rook.
