It’s a strange, rewarding album, rich with depth and texture. There’s crepuscular gloom here, for sure, but also warmth and beauty. Released in the freezing darkness of January, Cosmorama nevertheless looks forward to spring. – Quietus
A song like “Cosmorama”, with its ornate folksiness, glistening with steel strings is as lush as the sextet’s ever been; the glitchy electronics that introduce “Reverie” immediately transport the song to other zones. – UNCUT
