  1. Ultimately, Cornelius has shown that he stands alone when it comes to future pop, and the results are an exceptional pleasure to hear.

    A headphone masterpiece. [#25, p.94]
  3. 70
    Sensuous goes so far beyond the borders of radio-friendly melody that it's hard to recognize the Cornelius of bygone days. [May 2007, p.93]
  4. It's often as befuddling as it is brilliant.
  5. Cornelius has too many ideas, not just for an album but often for one song.

    Cornelius has created a beautiful and mind bending journey through a musical landscape.

    Not as great as Fantasma but more profoundly beautiful than Point. This is such a breath of fresh air to my speakers.

I saw him live playing most of the songs off of this album and now I have a real appriciation for it. Expand

    Solid release, but the album is a complete mess, Cornelius was at his best when he's more focused on pop beach boy tunes as he was on Solid release, but the album is a complete mess, Cornelius was at his best when he's more focused on pop beach boy tunes as he was on fantasma. Lack of structure and discipline with this release. Expand
