What the critics say:

"Earsay hits a new high with John Oliver's Icicle Blue Avalanche, one of the most viscerally dramatic discs I've heard in quite a while...huge slabs of extremely solid music."

- Splendidezine.com

"Repeated listening...reveals some limpid melodic lines floating above unusual harmonic progressions, and occasional touches of humour."
- The Georgia Straight

"...shimmering bells of guitar, softly growling guitar."
- Musicworks

"John Oliver's Icicle Blue Avalanche proves true to his concept of "immersive music." He accomplishes this through a collage of musical approaches, the results being a kind of melodic dissonance and, at other times, ambient dissonance. The guitar playing is excellent and perfectly complemented by the atmospheric drones, bass and other tones."
- Paul A. Toth, Violent Contradiction
