‘If you have any inclination towards mind-bending music then this album must certainly lie at the top of your wishlist. Not content with taking you on a trip, Fanatism also want to turn your mind inside out whist doing so. Throw in a hefty dose of ecstatic reverie and you have an album which sounds nothing quite like what you may have heard before. There are ghosts of familiar sounds, but made while through the mindset of these musicians, it sounds like nothing you have heard before. It’s been a strong year for psych music in general, but nothing has come close to the originality of this album. A remarkable achievement.’

Echoes and Dust

‘It’s hard to put my finger on exactly why I like this Fanatism album so much. This is because it is made up of such an eclectic set of of tracks that seem to range from jazz to post-punk, and many points beyond and between. What brings them together is sense of power and purpose that really drives these songs forward.’

Psych Insight

‘The variety contained within makes it a real smorgasbord of delights…the way it trips from motorik based krautrock to more pastoral psych and finishing with some retro synth sounds is truly wonderful and goes to make this an album of many dimensions… a trait that is sadly missing in so much music these days’
