The ambient sound is back in “Make believe” and I just get lost in it. I would love to have a score which used only that sound. It’s that minimalistic and dreamy sound that makes me want to close my eyes and fantasize. This cue is reflective and deep and I enjoy discovering its every subtlety. -Soundtrack Dreams



During the post-credits, The Pyramids’ forceful rendition of “Everything Leads Back to You” — one of many songs with plum guitar — sums up how their worldview has left few escape valves.  – Film Maker Magazine



There’s one cue that stands out to me, ‘The Pool’… the theme in it is beautiful. -Soundtrack Geek
