As successful as Continent is at evoking mood using deliberate pacing and ripe textures, it also managed to wrap its meticulously pruned pop reticence around everything from hushed poser-disco suites ("Invitation to Love") to sexy, swoon-struck soft-rock grooves ("Raining Patterns"). Hell, there's even a great Fleetwood Mac cover wedged in there, too. Since it's so easy to lose yourself in these lithe, languid electronic ruminations, it's no wonder that nearly everything I've read about CFCF-- and more specifically Continent itself-- has focused on the cinematic characteristics in Silver's work. But fair may it be to categorize these dozen tracks as a series of very accomplished daydream canvases, Continent becomes a richer experience when looked at as independent of any peripheral distraction, with its pop-friendly attention-grabbers very much in the foreground. (Pitchfork)

CFCF established himself through mining our pop culture collective conscious on Continent, re-imagining Alan Parsons or Arthur Russell and remixing FM classics like ‘Midas Touch’. You could definitely tell that this is a guy who likes a good pop hook; (Fact magazine)

This album is great! I love the Fleetwood Mac remake Big Love as I can't stop listening to it. Great album and great cuts.
