"Sequenced chords expand into ambrosial passages, blending with engaging riffs and gripping rhythms. The melodies continue to mature during each track, exploring variations and delivering a constant stream of sonic surprises. The riffs grow increasingly complex, while the percussion swells to epic proportions, imbuing each tune with majestic scope and rewarding stature. Lush atmospherics provide heady backdrops for more energetic fashions, as nimble-fingered electronics garnish these sedate elements with their vivacious resonance. Attractive percussion augments this gestalt with a brisk propulsion. Striving skyward, the tunes indulge in sidereal expressions that generate lavish and satisfying diversions. The interplay between rhythms and riffs is superb and inventive, invoking a rousing frame of mind that satiates a wide range of sonic desires. Although possibly best remembered as the drummer who graced many of Klaus Schulze's early recordings, Grosskopf establishes his own compositional skills with this enchanting music. While known as an integral contributor to the classic Berlin School of electronics, Grosskopf's music employs a versatile range of styles that carries the listener far beyond any retro sound, delving deeply into realms that transcend any dated quality and remain firmly rooted in tomorrow's promise."

-Matt Howarth / Soniccuriosity
