|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
