    This eco-themed, sci-fi clad concept album bristles with electro-pop sounds (Light Years, the OMD-ish title track) yet retains Gab's furrowed-brow lyricism and singular approach as he forges his own space within this changing landscape. [Feb 2010, p. 105]
  2. Even with Gab’s phonetic prowess and all that time to prepare for launch, Escape 2 Mars doesn’t reach the transcendent heights of its sublime, lushly orchestrated predecessor, ultimately feeling less like an epic interplanetary voyage and more like space camp.
  3. The hooks themselves are pretty tired throughout. That leaves the weight of each song purely on Gab’s shoulders, and he responds early, but sounds fatigued as the record moves on, and laid-back groove falls into tired rut.
