    Hauschildt's new opus is certainly just as captivating and varied as some of his band's [Emeralds] best work.
  2. Some might lament the lack of tension in this album, but when the music's this beautiful, who needs it?

    An elegant and often bewitching entrant in the surfeit of night-weary synthscapes.

    Tragedy and Geometry is exquisite and detailed to an almost obsessive-compulsive degree. [Jan 2012, p.89]

    At times the music can get sentimental and even sappy, but it's never heavy-handed.

    A visceral display of synth prowess that makes exhilarating use of contrasting textures and subtle dynamics.
  7. 70
    Tragedy & Geometry is an emotional, slow-burning, hour-long journey that tests the limits of how captivating an exploration via ambient repetition can be.
