“…it’s a beguiling, often beautiful album that quietly but purposefully announces his return to the fray, as ever, on his own terms.” **** – The Guardian
“…’Ripples’ marks the welcome return of a solo artist who never rested on his laurels or allowed himself to be overshadowed by past glories. King Monkey’s getting back to business.” **** – Q
