"Rain Tongue’s self-titled label debut is a professionally crafted instrumental album that features contemporary sounds that should appeal to fans of Sigur Ros, Mogwai and the likes..." DisAreement
"Rain Tongue has delivered a stellar opening statement that not only highlights their superb musicianship, but also reveals their exceptional dedication to the art of crafting well thought out songs that encompass the entire emotional spectrum..." Sea Of Tranquility
"The album is very relaxing, although steers well clear of any ambient/new wave territory being far more interesting and dynamic... If you are into melodic, instrumental music then Rain Tongue are certainly a band to keep an eye out for...." Dutch Progressive Rock Page
