"Paesaggi sonori mutevoli[...]I riferimenti sono in certa ambient music degli anni Ottanta e Novanta, da Brian Eno a Harold Budd, con qualche suggestione post-rock" Musica Jazz

"One of the best electronica album i heard this autumn." Yamanote Dreams

"Textures of the best post rock, free of gender clichés. [...]All the work is inspired and inspiring, moved by a research of technique and sound not indifferent" RockIt

""Clouds under the table" is an excellent and eclectic work, with countless influences[...]a never boring instrumental album that offers surprises after many listening" NetMusic Life

""Ambient" might begin to describe this music, but the presence of Discepoli's relatively straightforward drumming gives the compositions more of a rootedness and energy than that to which most typical electronic ambient music lays claim" All About Jazz

"A vibrant and rich sonic color palette combined with soul shaking melodies and a live drum set move this music to a post rock/jazz fusion line where it music rests comfortably while creating an ambient pulse.[...]Clouds Under The Table is a well thought out and impeccably performed sonic food for the visceral as well as the cerebral" @Critical Jazz

"[...]you will encounter the mellifluous minimalism of Steve Reich hand-in-hand with the idm of Boards Of Canada and moments that bring to mind a classic jazz Miles or Coltrane with post rock bands such as Tortoise and Do Make Say Think.
Nheap presents a deep sound, which do you disguise gradually after several hearings, continually discovering details and elements that make it all more interesting. But, since the first listening, the music relaxes, calms and travels. Intricate rhythms meet simple and beautiful melodies, experimentation and relaxed, cool ideas. In this helps amazing drums and percussion that stimulates the more abstract and ambient compositions. Thus, the "heavy" avant-garde atmosphere somehow unload through the filter of a warm mood.[...]" Music on air

"[...]an impressive consolidation of Discepoli’s distinctive sound." Leonard's Lair

"I can only agree with the statement that creative music can also be warm, for instance, if to regard Massimo Discepoli`s 8-piece brand new one" Recent music heroes

"Relaxing, but very thoughtful at the same time, recommended" Hidden Vibes Community
