Sven B. Schreiber Almost four years have passed since the release of the extraordinary demo album... but the waiting was worth it, since the resulting debut album fully keeps the promises made by its predecessor. Once again, mastermind and multi-instrumentalist Maxime Lathière and his fellows transcend the confines of the fusion genre, traveling deep into post-metal and synth-pop territorry, even including some Japanese influences. This outstanding blend - breathtaking and entertaining at the same time - is performed by several exceptional musicians standing by Maxime Lathière's side, like Plini, David Maxim Micić, Luke Martin, and one of the best drummers I've heard so far - Travis Orbin. Favorite track: Planet Geisha I Sacred Geometry (feat. Plini & David Maxim Micic).

Ghastrophonic Some of the best riffs I have ever heard! Both guitars and electronically. Astounding electronic and rock fusion! Favorite track: Planet Geisha I Sacred Geometry (feat. Plini & David Maxim Micic).

Jeroen Petri This has to be one of the first albums that ever managed to get me more into electronic music rather than just the subtle touches found in prog/djenty music these days. A unique blend of electronic music, proggy/djenty riffs and oriental influences. Definitely one of the best albums I listened to in the year of 2016, backed up by amazing artwork as well! Favorite track: Planet Geisha III Maneki Neko 招き猫.
