    Thankfully, most of Hauschildt's eight-track LP further explores the sounds and themes that made Tragedy & Geometry the brilliant record it is.

    It's an odd album, but a good one, which will make you smile at its slightly off-kilter weirdness while soothing your weary bones.

    This seeming juxtaposition of entirely retro leaning, concise pop sensibilities and massive, atmospheric tendencies shouldn't meld seamlessly, let alone adjoin each other, yet Hauschildt repeatedly finds a way to fit the pieces together.

    Like Tragedy & Geometry, it's awash in vintage synthesised sounds with which fans of Tangerine Dream and Ash Ra Tempel will be familiar, but remains considerably more concise than this (and its predecessor) suggests. [Jan 2013, p.77]

    Right now Sequitur feels like a step forward for a genre that could happily stay the same forever.

    Sequitur feels very much like a whistle stop tour of the history of ambient/electronic music.

    Sequitur contains powerful resonances with the past, and it certainly reorganizes some beautiful moments that have been left behind, but some of these moments were left there for a reason.
