While 'The Inevitable' was a terrific debut, '002' is a work of superior beauty. Ghostly voice and music samples, distorted, distant pianos and choirs are woven through palettes reminiscent of Brian Eno and the KLF ('Chill Out'). Turn out the lights, close your eyes and be transported to...somewhere not on this earth. Early copies come with the first album as a bonus disc. - The Age Newspaper.
There is no doubt that the compositions of Martin Kennedy have a distinct flavour of their own. Though they travel and twist across many landscapes, the soul and root of the music maintains an alluring ambience. We are brought into the the mood with an authentic trip hop mix which later returns in the latter part of the first two CDs. The attraction is brewed through very simple, long and deep basslines. These are coloured with wandering guitar strokes over the top. At times the melodies could be derived from the Ry Cooder school, set in a post 20th century context of electronic origin. This is a truly diverse piece of work with a lot to offer. - Ben Karsay, 3D World November 2001
All India Radio, an Australian group, makes exotic sounds over laid-back beats. The Deep Forest-like "Permanent Revolutions" blends sweeping classical Chinese strings with a melodic guitar line; the uplifting "You'll Never Go To Bollywood" samples Indian vocals and instruments and has touches of Massive Attacks's "Unfinished Sympathy"; and "Wetbacks And Greenbacks" is an atmospheric piece with a gentle groove. Love the subtle distortion and wobbles and the heavy influence of Indian singing styles. - The Age 'E-Mag' October 2001
The follow-up to All India's stunning debut is littered with swirling samples sourced from India & Central America all to the mellow underscore of beats & breaks. Available for a strictly limited time as a double CD featuring the bonus of All India Radio's self-titled debut. - Chaosmusic.com reviews 2001
