All Music Guide - Brian E. Kirby
Mychael Danna and Tim Clément call the style they utilize on North of Niagara "romantic minimalism," which allows them to capture the emotion of their subject by keeping the instrumentation simple and direct.

This is achieved by using keyboards almost exclusively over a bed of synthesizers, with occasional augmentation by various ambient noises recorded on the trail, steel guitar, bass, and bassoon. Lush enough to be evocative yet stark enough not to be cloying, this is by far the best collaboration between these two Canadians. A beautiful work.

    An Evocation of Hypnotic Appeal

    This is wonderful music that cuts across all boundaries and has something that will please everyone. It can stir up a variety of emotions and make one think of events in their lives that they may have forgotten about. Dana & Clement have really done a fantastic job with this album and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for good meditative New Age Music.
