"This is the Brooklyn band's eighth album and is perfect summer chill out listening and a great background soundtrack to pondering the vast universe, too." Cosmos Magazine


"All the planets–and dwarf planet Pluto, too–get a nod, as do Jupiter's myriad moons and the exoplanets. Even without subject matter so close to Discover's heart, Planets would still be a plain old good listen."
Discover Magazine

"Your coolness quotient shoots up a few points if you're in the know about One Ring Zero." The Washington Post
