I don't think there's much I can say about this electronic/jazz/cosmic masterpiece that hasn't already been mentioned other than to suggest getting the vinyl for this thing. It sounds fantastic!!!

From JulianR
This is a really odd record. It has seventeen tracks, yet if you're not paying attention to it, it feels more like one long track than many albums that actually are one long track. It just has an odd way of blending together.

When I first found this album, I didn't really enjoy it. Maybe its just that there are so many different little sounds happening that it was hard to process all at once. It definitely has a much more maximalist feel to it, compared to most other IDM. But now, coming back to it, I keep enjoying it more and more. The songs are oddly catchy, considering that they rarely break 3 minutes, and only occasionally stay on the same motif for any period of time.

Much has been made of the jazz influences here, though I don't really hear it. Maybe I'm so advanced that I just don't even hear genre. That's not true though, so I probably just don't know jazz well enough. Either way, its not as overwhelmingly obvious at all as people would make it seem.

85/100 (Very Good)

Most sonically interesting album I've heard in a while. Jazz influence mixed with an experimental dance vibe (IDM if you will). Thom Yorke feature is the cherry on top for me. It has its flaws, main one being that it builds and builds to a climax which sometimes only tends to last less than a minute before moving onto the next build-up which at times left me wanting more and feeling shorthanded. But this can be forgiven due to the captivation I felt when listening and the amount of unique ideas done in such a refined way.

Great from start to finish. I love the jazz influence, and the ethereal production reminds me of some early 2000s Radiohead

this album really took a long time for me to digest. there's so many ideas crammed in here that on first listen i was almost taken aback. with time, however, cosmogramma's subtle mastery of electronica has grown on me. every single song has so many little details and nuances that come together into a cohesive, forceful, wacky journey through the cosmos. absolutely brilliant

Great nephew of Alice Coltrane, Flylo, creates some of the most intellectual fusion of electronic and jazz I've heard. This album comes complete with Thundercat (bassist virtuoso) and Radiohead frontman Thom York contributing their futuristic visions to an album that only shines brighter with their help. The way I see it, this album is perfectly crafted for background sounds of a swanky party of discerning guests, dapper bowties and little black cocktail dresses. This is the perfect album to play (in between dance favorites, of course) just as the party is swelling or needs to relax and breathe a little slower.
