    While a number of tracks offer a solid melodic thread to grasp,m wade deep enough into Ufabulum and you'll find the sweetness a trap. [Jun 2012, p.160]

    At 50 minutes, Ufabulum is a little exhausting and monotonous to be declared a masterpiece. But chunks of it are quite brilliant and exciting, so it's better to take it exactly as it is: a Squarepusher record, through and through.

    You wonder if he's forgotten how to have, you know, fun. Approach with caution. [No.87 p.61]

    Ufabulum won't blow the mind of anyone familiar with his work, but it's a decent entry point for new fans and a very satisfying collection of light-hearted left-field dance music.

    A few surprisingly wishy-washy string-synths aside, it is, as always, hugely impressive but disappointingly cold and forbidding.

    This is Squarepusher with the best equipment money can buy, pumping his tracks mercilessly until they're all surface and no substance.

    Whilst undoubtedly, and commendably, experimental, very few tracks on Ufabulum hit their mark.

    Ufabulum is perhaps not a terrible album in any respect, but at the same time it simply is an incredibly boring one.
