"As with past releases, the band composes songs using poetry from noted fantasy authors Cicely Mary Barker, William Blake, William Ernest Henley, Richard Watson Dixon, George MacDonald, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and Mervyn Peake. Plus for grins they threw in a scatological cover tune by that oddball poet and musician Lady June. Of Ullages and Dottles is whimsical, paying homage to the "I Am the Walrus" and British psychedelia on "Laughing Song," supplying us dreamy guitars, sitars, Mellotron, and flute on "Where Forlorn Sunsets Flare and Fade," and inserting the haunting musical quote from Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir" in the middle of "The Golden Knot." All in all, listening to this CD is an extremely pleasurable and satisfying experience." (Exposé)

"I believe that Smell Of Incense have made with this album their best record to date ... mell Of Incense definitely is based in a neo-sixties flavoured, well arranged, psychpop style. With this they open up a fantasy-like world which is song based, and highly melodious and charming. The arrangements of the guitars are closely interwoven with mellotrons, flutes and percussions mostly, but also various other instruments (like mandolin, sitar, harpsichord,…) fill all the rest of the space for it completely. Just the last track I can lift out a small section with a spacerock psychedelica association somewhere, and another section with a faded out electronic music fantasy. Recommended." (PsychedelicFolk)
