From What's Up Bellingham Magazine by Jake Werrion:

"SiLM released 'LISTEN WITHIN' last April, a Dreamgazy epic that spans twelve tracks of textured beauty. This album is difficult to write about in that music doesn't get much more intimate than this. There is an above average feeling of sacredness here; describing it feels akin to trying to describe somebody else's dreams back to them, and the more you listen the more you feel as though you're being let in on some big secret. It's charming and lonely, resigned and observant, teasing out feelings of apocalypse or maybe just the peacefulness of sleep.
The recording and mastering feel flawless, with so many instruments weaving in and out in such a subtle manner, the ear is never want for something new, yet the songs never feel busy or stilted. Part of the charm comes from a heavy, natural reverb that saturates the sound in a way that it seems to place you alone with the band in some big empty church hall, a perfect medium for Luke and Hannah's angelic, whispery vocal styles.
The album is as inspiring as it is comforting, but it takes time to understand; it won't give up all it's secrets at first. Instead, it begs the listener to make art, to stomp mud puddles, write love notes to a secret crush, to put aside ambition and smell the rain. It's a truly novel and impressive release."
