“Ideas have blossomed and become something rather special on this album. That early promise of the music on ‘Lonely Hills’ has been expanded upon and ‘Outer Light, Inner Darkness’ is a much more sophisticated and complete record as a result. Intricate and subtle yet with raw passion at its heart, it will cement The Aaron Clift Experiment as one of the most exciting and interesting bands currently writing and playing music today. I would advise you to go out and buy it as soon as it is released.” –Progradar

Early reviews for Outer Light, Inner Darkness are in, and the word is highly positive!  Click the images below to read the reviews:

“Progressive Rock from Austin, TX, isn’t previously unheard of, this we understand, but listening to The Aaron Clift Experiment you could be forgiven for thinking that perhaps it had never sounded so good.” –Anne Carlini, Exclusive Magazine

Hosting a distinctive sound and attitude that separates them from the pack and the old days, this bunch has the skills to pay the bills and spearhead a real prog revival. –Chris Spector, Midwest Record

The new eleven song release begins with the seven-minute progressive rock intricacy of “Kissed By The Sun” as their musical skills are put to the test. The slower delivery of “Locked” and moderate pace of “Fragments Of Sleep” are appealing pieces of music that anyone can find themselves hooked on.  — JP’s Music Blog
