Review by Yeah I Know It Sucks:
"The Naked Lights by Pollux are seen shimmering over the dark lands, they appear to come from deep under the ground, now zooming over the landscape like the mysterious northern lights but then so much more naked. These lights reveal everything and when they shine through their windy exposures they seem to go through you from ear to ear. It’s as if the Naked Lights are making listeners transparent as bright lasers shoot by like extraterrestrial entertainment.

These naked lights have also humanity to them, a guitar might even be played by these naked friends, or they zoom in wet illustrious forms over the horizon like alienating spectacles that absorbs the sky and takes all their clothes off. The naked lights reveals the mechanics, the insects and the squeaky bugs that have run the show behind the fabrics of life, the clothing of the emperor who had always walked around naked.

The naked lights are not only shining their lights to make all that’s in their way transparent, they also reveal a huge beauty. This comes later, as the more the naked lights progress and the more every listener gets more and more used to the revelation of exposing them self without masks or cover ups. The naked lights will massage the mind and the ears with electronic special materials, kind kindness, little mechanic shocks and pleasant soothing low sliding bass orgasms. Who needs or wants normal clothes again?"
Review by Recent Music Heroes:
"I guess these 17 minutes are as interesting as the life of the Frenchman Arnaud Barbe being known as the prolific musician Pollux, and heading the popular experimental music imprint Sirona-Records. Indeed, these 1036 seconds are the truly intriguing which in turn can be compared with a cross-section of the records. It could be said he is here a little bit more self-indulgent in comparison to his other ones, or at least most of his issues, because it consists of disparate musical styles frequently. For instance, ominous ambient progressions are followed by free form synthesizer or MIDI-led emulation-based improvised snippets. Even some lo-fi and primitive music cuts are represented over there. Let’s add some electro-acoustic experiments with buried piano chords (or are they the prepared strings rather?) By their own point these are very interesting sounds but they create an additional value due to those mind-blowing transitions and then relations between the aforesaid styles. Last but not least - if the lights are naked then all is naked beneath and within it. Thereof the fun is guaranteed, life is beautiful and give it a proper place."
