"Hansen approaches the listener through a series of rich Dark Ambient and crisp drones. Occasional rasps of distortion grind a welcome appearance into the mix, driving an edge to the proceedings; alongside gasps of frost-tinged ambience, that breathe an accompanying chilled mist for atmospheric weight. Balancing distance between the varying degrees of sound is something that Hansen has achieved to great effect." [9/10, Black Audio]
"I must say a daring approach, but I am not sure if it works for me that well. I quite enjoy single pieces out of this collection, as they are spacious, gritty (there is even a distorted guitar to be spotted in some of these pieces), noisy, ambient and such like, but the pieces are so damn short. Much of what you hear in these short pieces could easily offer something that lasts four or five minutes I would think. Have some more pacing, slower developments, let sounds play out more and that sort of compositional deliberations. There is a wealth of material in these twenty-one pieces that just scream to be explored." [FdW, VitalWeekly 1035]
"Considering the album is 21 tracks long with offerings barely ever reaching the three minute mark, the intensity Hansen manages to reach from track to track is really rather impressive. At moments Terminal Velocity calls to mind Jed Kerzel’s soundtrack to angst-ridden John Bunting biopic Snowtown, so forceful are its narratives. Take ‘Disadvantage Point’ for example, shuddering amp-driven chords and screeching harmonics hurtle alongside one another like two burning meteors flying through space."
