"Soundtracks, which incorporates pieces for film, performance and dance, is comprised of extremely refined and carefully considered music that creates some profoundly interesting states and is much more developed and interesting than the typical soundtrack...Greinke's efforts range from tranquil to unsettled, from some truly beautifully written passages realized with cello and piano, to intricate, heavily treated and nearly atonal soundscapes that remain very musical, refusing to degenerate into sound." K. Leimer e/i magazine

"Exquisite, subtle, timeless, intimate, organic, and melancholic. The way he incorporates synth pads, resonant strings, chimes, and piano into such finely honed compositions is truly a marvel to hear." OUTBURN

"Heading in the (more or less) opposite direction from his previous recording, Wide View (a masterpiece of starkly beautiful melancholic ambient soundscapes), Jeff Greinke has infused his latest album with kinetic rhythms that combine electronica, glitch, and even world fusion beats alongside accessible, but still ambient, melodies. The music is sometimes quirkily playful, sometimes eerily pretty, and other times dark and sinister. The result is one of the most delightfully idiosyncratic releases of 2003." Bill Binkelman

"Back in 1985, Jeff Greinke released an LP of ambient industrial music titled "Cities In Fog". The sound of industry and contemporary cityscapes - grinding metal, pounding machinery - were tempered and processed in the studio, producing a removed impressionist haze. Though the imagery was disturbing, even nightmarish, it was equally compelling, seductive, and undeniably beautiful. This little-known gem was the starting point of a fascinating musical trek for Greinke. His vision has expanded, and his recent work is exotic and atmospheric.
Greinke rediscovered ambient industrial while contributing to an anthology (Sombient's "Throne of Drones"). This unorthodox "Cities In Fog" reissue...

"Jeff Greinke's environmental soundscapes are impressions of an inner space wholly different from that of any other electronic composer I can think of." OPTION

"Austere and a little forbidding.... Vaporous tonal chords drift apart to form denser, less penetrable shapes."
SEATTLE WEEKLY

"Greinke's timbres... have that Eno lushness and diffuseness... it's a distancing, a patina of time and detachment. There's an air of desolation that blows through this." BOSTON ROCK

"...You don't hear this music as much as absorb it through your skin.... There's poignancy to this swirl of sound that lends it a substance such ethereal music rarely manages." Seattle Weekly
