    More of the same, only more so. [Apr 2002, p.94]
  2. Represents a considerable stride in ambition, reaching into dark unchartered territories and repaying close listening with the kind of organic insights that great music excels in unearthing.

    For the most part, Geogaddi only hints at new directions. But then, if it ain't broke, why fix it? [Apr 2002, p.78]
  4. Geogaddi isn't a classic.... Disappointing, however, it is not.
  5. Satisfying in every way that Aphex Twin's Drukqs wasn't. [Apr 2002, p.110]
  6. Geogaddi is even more stripped-down and beautiful than Music Has..., BOC using simple circular rhythms and eerie samples to create an airless, ethereal ultraworld.
  7. Of the 23 tracks, only four truly stand out. [#218, p.58]

    One of the most immersive, creepy, and downright head-tripping albums I've ever experienced. Nostalgically beautiful, yet subtly sinister, this is only surpassed by "Music Has the Right..." as their greatest work. Expand

    The music itself is great but I can't give this album more then 6,66 because of blatant use of satanistic imagery,symbols and messages all over the place.I don't care if they did it for a joke,artistic reasons or whatever-it's just way over the line for me. Expand
