    Nothing here is must=-hear, but true fans will enjoy sorting through of Montreal's influences and musical thought process as they prepare for the next full-length album. [May 2011, p.85]

    Thecontrollersphere is another thrilling addition to the Of Montreal catalog, but it's hardly a welcoming entry point for those unaccustomed to the depraved yet tantalizing world of Kevin Barnes. For longtime fans though, this EP represents another exhilarating turn from one of America's most singular musicians.
  3. As said, the songs benefit from being taken out of context and as much as that leads to just picking and choosing the moments worth going back for, the process of listening to the EP as a whole can almost be disheartening as much as it is unrewarding.
