    I don't get it. I have listened to all the 'best of' new music from James Blake, Lykke Li, Destroyer, Nicolas Jaar and whilst this album scores highly on metacritic, i don't get it. I have tried to listen to it countless times but its too random. No structure. Rubbish actually.

    It's hard to scrape the sensation that there's something a little inadequate about Tryptych, even as immersive headphone sessions reveal new levels of depth within the productions.

    Blending machine rhythms and subterranean beats with ghostly atmospherics, world music chants and groaning analogue disquiet they create a rich, unnerving sound that feels both modern and ancient. [Mar 2011, p.114]

    It's a heavy trip, with the exotic/erotic minimal techno of Ricardo Villalobos overlaid to intoxicating effect with the eerie hauntological manoeuvers of The Focus group. [Feb 2011, p.82]
