"A startlingly mature album that belies the band's relative inexperience and fresh-face, A Fair Dream Gone Mad will more than likely be the best unsigned album to come out this year. Better yet, it's certainly one of the more alluring dark/atmospheric albums to hit in 2012 as well. Definitely a band worth rallying behind, if only because North America needs a band to close the gap Europe has on us in this field. Totally recommended." David E. Gehlke, blistering.com
"What In The Silence have managed to achieve with this, their self-financed & independently released debut is nothing short of remarkable. The beautiful yet haunting atmosphere, intricate songwriting & talented musicianship displayed throughout this album will leave you spellbound. This may well just be one of the best debut albums of the year. A must for all fans of progressive metal." -Nefarious, Metalstorm.net.
