"All India Radio triumph with The Inevitable. It is old school ambient music...reminds us of the KLF's brilliant ambient effort "Chill Out", The Inevitable is a truly imaginative piece of work. Well worth the trip" - Beat Magazine
"Soulfully composed" - Rolling Stone
" It's the kind of music that comes to you in dreams and to hear it actualised is really quite spooky "
- Inpress Magazine
"All India Radio is an Australian duo. They have just produced a very beautiful album of ambient music, an album which could have been imagined by the German pioneers of ambient music. It sounds like the album Tangerine Dream failed to produce right from the start by playing sub-Pink Floyd style, before they later found their right voice. These two Australians, obviously influenced by Asia and the Indian ocean more than we are in Europe, have avoided all the typical traps of so called "immobile music". They do not just produce a showcase of beautiful sounds. Here one is submerged by the notes coming out of the drum machine. Noises pour out in a delirious dreamlike form, the way it feels when one is slightly feverish and everything sounds rushed and mangled".

"Some albums come out of nowhere and escape all attempt at classification.The name and the cover suggest a new anglo-Pakistani bangra beat-style production, while in fact it is a rather arty project imported from Australia. AIR is made of Aidan Halloran and Martin Kennedy, former members of indie band Pray TV. The sound - definitely ambient- is lo-fi and low key: guitar, drum machine, sound sampled in India, plateaux and many space effects. Somewhere between languid opium moods and desolate landscapes, high art and Paris Texas."
