Jul 25, 2013 Outstanding FAME Review of Shimmering Land (Mark S. Tucker)
"...good God, does Meg Bowles ever nail such sounds and atmospheres to the wall! Working alone and, as far as I can tell, strictly with synthesizers, she, in The Shimmering Land, has fleshed out a set of six long landscapes...so well that it takes the breath away while settling the mind into terrene and alien vistas....The CD, then, is, when all's said, heard, and done, a collection of haunting paintings from which there is no escape nor any desire to." Mark S. Tucker () http://www.acousticmusic.com/fame/p08962.htm
Jul 23, 2013 Fantastic review from Bert Strolenberg, Sonic Immersion
"The pastoral-flavored "The Shimmering Land" merges the ancient, the unknown and the mystical in a beautiful immersive manner, at times sonically linking to the in-depth music of Max Corbacho, Thom Brennan or Jon Jenkins. This soft glowing ambient travelogue is highly recommended." Bert Strolenberg http://www.sonicimmersion.org/review.php?letter=B&review=72721
