"Play it over and over, and you will still find amazing things in Supersilent's 6. The level of unspoken understanding, interplay, and clarity of vision in experimentation is now beyond words ... In the fourth piece, the group finds an irresistible momentum propelled by Vespestad's drumming, the kind of freight-train-to-outer-space drive that should send all members of Godspeed You Black Emperor! back to their bedrooms. Supersilent simply does it better, without the irritating poise. Highly recommended to dreamers, droners, and avant rock lovers." (AllMusic)

"The Norwegian quartet Supersilent record for Rune Grammofon, but they're distributed internationally by ECM. In many ways, they'd be the perfect ECM band, though they have an edgier, almost sinister undercurrent that's unlike anything that label has approached ... And for all the images they may summon, the band makes music as abstractly as possible: The albums and tracks are numbered, not titled; the personnel aren't listed on the cover; and for all the attempts to label them "jazz," "electronic" or "ambient", the band eschews genres: The music's played so close to the vest that it slips under any classification ... Their latest album, 6, is their most engrossing and tactically varied yet. It's also the most accessible." (Pitchfork)

"In the beginning of their catalogue, one could barely fathom the twists and turns that came with the experience of listening to a Supersilent album. As they’ve progressed, they seem to be getting a lot more comfortable in their own skin. 6, the most accessible record of the series, is an enigmatic opus of psychedelic opulence. The marriage here of the old and new world is brought together to form a timeless piece of work." (Tiny Mix Tapes)
