Review from rockhardplace.com - 'In trying to describe 'Clandestiny' words that come to mind are 'haunting', 'chilling', 'thought-provoking' and 'intense'. I guess you would consider this acoustic. There are no drums on the entire album, but instead an amazing blend of keyboards, voices and vocals, sound effects and other elements. It's almost like a soundtrack to a Horror film in some ways, tracks like 'Beginning To See' will disturb you to the bone marrow with it's computerized voice talking about death. At other times, you can't help but think of Pink Floyd, there are lots of those type of trippy elements in the music. I don't want to promote the use of any mind-enhancing drugs, but let's just say this CD would be perfect IF one chose to partake in such behavior. Clandestiny is basically Matt Duplessie, he does everything on the CD, which makes the songs even more amazing. He has an amazing voice and an equally amazing talent for song construction. The gothic overtones of the music would fit well into the European Metal scene now with bands like Nightwish and that crowd. If you got Duplessie in a band God knows what sort of magic could be constructed. If asked to put this music in a genre, I suppose Acoustic Alternative would fit, but it's not a perfect description either. It's really indescribable and an amazing piece of work. The production is also superb, when you listen to this with headphones you really pick up on a lot of different things. This is great chilling out music despite it's intense nature, it really brings you to another place, both relaxing and even a little scary. - Torch'
