"Fully instrumental, "In A Cold Embrace" is able to manage that which so few albums can: it comes off as a perfectly unified whole, a single unbroken journey that maintains an exceptional level of quality from the first note to the last. "In A Cold Embrace" is, in my mind at least, undoubtedly a masterpiece, radiating beauty and transporting the listener to another world for its entire length. [...] it isn't often that music this good comes along."
"While the album is, in essence, made of the same stuff of the last album, the band has added so much more to their sophomore effort [...] it without a doubt adds a new dimension to the genre that many a band in the future should take influence from. No doubt In a Cold Embrace will go down as one of the better post rock releases of the year."

"Battlestations have managed to shift their music from mere excellence into the realm of mastery [...] Battlestations have sharpened up their compositions. Although the ambient doctrine has been maintained as pure as ever, the music of this band feels more memorable. Each track is a majestic sequence of episodes, taking the listener to a different shade of a vast soundscape. Post-rock in recent years has rarely sounded so fresh"
