8/10, Brutal Resonance
"The album turned out diverse, listens well. He does not tire as it is now accepted in dark electro-projects of different calibers, including grants."
"Thoughtful electronics are well complemented by decent lyrics with meaning. Each song is original and interesting, so release obeys the same breath."
7/10, Dark Media Group
"There’s so much stompy goodness to be found here, along with some great synth work and great beats, and many of the tracks on this album are fantastic and would make excellent club tracks. This is a great album with many tracks that can be played to keep the crowds dancing all night long"
Coma Music Magazine
"If anyone wonders, about the condition of the club scene in Russia, undoubtedly that record is the answer to the question. Sounds on that album are addictive and as varied as possible. Each song is different, recorded with unflagging energy, which pleasantly surprise."
