    A roaring cosmic-rock romp, equal parts Muse-esque space station stomps and jitterbug Krautrock rhythmics. [Dec. 2011 p. 137]

    An album that as a whole sounds like a collage depicting a comprehensive list of everyone who's anyone from the past 40 years of popular music.

    A fluorescent, gently psychedelic record with a fat vein of Eighties pop running through it.

    Ecstatics proves to be only half the album it thought itself capable of being.
