Following is review by WWW.Glasserk.co.UK E-zine
"Sentinel’s debut album comes loaded to the rim of some pretty cool new grooves. A real indie-pop band from the 90’s Cocteau Twins and Lush variety. Tarabud’s dreamy Vocals and driving Bass are complemented by Dennis Bestafka production and guitar.
˜The Muse’ gives you an overall tone of the work completed on the album and is certainly the most pop friendly tune on offer " again Tarabud's vocals and Dennis’ guitar becoming instantly recognisable. Yet ˜Delores café’ and ˜Present’ are also tracks that become easy to recognise purely by their openings. The sound of these songs are fairly similar which could cause confusion among titles, but the songs are not so repetitive as to become boring or one note.
˜Royal Way’ is probably the highlight of the album and truly exposes both artists depths " Tarabud dropping tone for the chorus and Dennis swaying further than in previous tracks. ˜Royal Way’ at times itself feels like a mad dream. ˜Weighdown’ funks the album up a notch, only then for the artists bring the tone of the album right down for a very mellow ˜All But Gone’ finale.
You may find further acoustical numbers on your CD after the main eight tracks have played out " But the concentrate on the main body of work, it is one that entertains in a joyous celebration of sound and the force that drives it. Sentinel display their passion for a certain sounds, and how they can alternate it between instant pop and thoughtful recluse."
