    On only a few listens, it’s clear that Mediation Of Ecstatic Energy is by far the most dynamic of not only these releases but of Wong’s entire career, not only on an instrumental level, but on an emotional level.

    On Mediation of Ecstatic Energy he is able to give that virtuosity a form that makes for a coherent, beautiful album.

    It's a record that seamlessly flows from one idea to another, and its intricate, knotted textures are certainly deserving of recognition. [Aug-Sep 2013, p.102]

    Much of Mediation of Ecstatic Energy is content to sit, lost in a maze of Echoplex, navigating its own navel. [Nov 2013, p.81]
