" Long Gone finds Sympathy Pain awash in aural baths of pulsing guitar tones and eliding drones that start, rather than diminish, in dissonance and distortion. This slow-motion reverse is one of the most complete things on this record. Melodies and drones shed, rather than gather dissonance as they vanish and then reappear; creating conversations that gain more clarity and confidence as they continue. I guess Sympathy Pain hasn't really let go yearning for light, but rather has adjusted to the low lumens sheen of living inside."
- Tome to the Weather Machine
"Long Gone is humanizing without the luxury of clearly organic, human instruments. It points out those moments of loss lying latent deep within its audience, and brings those moments up for reflection. It manages to make one feel, know and yearn without a single word spoken"
