“I love everything about this band from their beautiful, psychedelic music style, to their Blake-like lyrics...they remind me of the science fiction of Hawkwind matched with this rock style that sounds like absolutely no one I can think of.” Audio Fuzz

“Language of Shapes’ Mother Mountain is complex, dense, and modern without falling for any sort of modern schticks or trends. It’s a beautiful record rich in story and epic in ideas. It’s earthy, organic, honest, and damn good.." Backseat Mafia

“The entire Mother Mountain record is ethereal and anything but lackluster.” Speak Into My Good Eye

"[Language of Shapes] recently released their sophomore effort, Mother Mountain and the album manages to both further cement their reputation for a cinematic and broodingly Romantic sound while also subtly expanding on it." The Joy of Violent Movement

"The eleven track LP extends to just over the hour and every moment is time well spent. " Emerging Indie Bands

“If I say this band has a sound that vibrates with color and elevates notes to the realm of the surreal, well, baby, take it to the bank and cash it because that check was written in dragon's blood ink.”
Surf Rock Music

"Light On's light and playful melody and rhythm are dashed on the rocks of harsh imagery, but ultimately redemption is at hand. Plus mandolin - always good." Record Rewind Play

"The self-proclaimed Psych-fi Sci-Folk group, Language of Shapes has to be heard....With many sounds being experimented with these days it’s hard to stand out. Language of Shapes has no problems with that, their sound is intoxicating." The Fire Note

"For all their eccentricity it’s a moving piece, hinting in a baroque-folk bent towards the kind of swelling emotion Arcade Fire used to be so good at before they disappeared up their own arses, but with a crucial, affable understatement." Get Into This
