A reverb-drenched wash of distorted-guitar-like sounds on many of the tracks here - paying homage to the ethereal, atmospheric sounds of the revered 4AD label. Then ASMR-triggering voices & sounds are overlaid to achieve further layers of atmosphere...

"Zero Beats Per Minute" album reviewed at Hypnagogue.net - the Ambient & Electronic review site:
"...Zero Beats Per Minute works very well as an ambient listen, particularly in its softer tracks. But this is one you need to get up close and personal with. The depth of sound is excellent, as is the overall dynamic. The music here slowly carves out well-detailed spaces for you to look around with your mind's eye..."

Rami Dahud from CDReviews.com reviews 2007's "Songs for the Uninvited" album:
"...Cosmic Mind Warp's production capabilities...resonate with the emotions of the listener just as competently as it suddenly tosses them in the middle of the strange, undiscovered landscapes of the freakish worlds they create.
“A Sort of Greenish Haze” uses vocal samples to set up a theme of alien exploration, and sets in tune with beautiful textures that expertly compliment each other, resulting in the crowning stand-out of the whole album.
“Dark Matters” also carries the album out on an appropriate note, with its droning background synths sustaining their way through its foreboding overtones...Although this may be titled “Songs For The Uninvited,” enthusiasts of the unclassifiable outlandishness that bellow up from the catacombs of electronic music will feel very much at home..."
From CD Baby:
"This music is different! It catches you unawares; it’s saying something to you but in a subtle way, working through another dimension, stimulating the unconscious mind." (Review of "Songs for the Uninvited" album by George Martinez, CDBaby)
Phil @ Norman Records reviews "Songs for the Uninvited":
"Yes there are 'other things' instead of the crap you're told to like by journo's and the major labels... So here's something you won't find in your local branch of HMV and you (shamefully) won't hear it on the radio.
A new CD by COSMIC MIND WARP which is 100% lush melodic electronics choca with random samples and some well crazy sounds. Thankfully it's all very coherent and you'll be pleased to know I think its ace. They say they're heavily influenced by Severed Heads. I've never really heard much by 'em but Ant here is a fan and he can hear it in their music...Heartily recommended."
"I don't think weird is a sufficient adjective to capture the abstractness of your work!" (Rami Dahud from CDReviews.com)
