Michael Alexander
The Dominion

"Downes' The Rusted Wheel of Things is compelling listening in both its depth and breadth of momentum and texture. Mixing renaissance simplicity and gothic starkness with driving rushes of rhythm and eerie signatures, it's a striking fusion of cross cultural influences."

Michael Heath
The Listener

"The Rusted Wheel of Things is a lyrical and tranquil album, with a Celtic feel. There are lovely delicate vocals by Delia Shanly and by Downes himself, and the album is full of many haunting and truly evocative moments. Music of a single-minded imagination."
