    [A] wonderous first solo offering outside of Air. [Oct 2015, p.76]

    A lovely, stimulating debut album, Contrepoint is a beautifully written love letter to musical history and creativity.

    [An] entertaining tribute to the supreme genius if baroque music. [Oct 2015, p.108]
  4. Sep 22, 2015
    Out of something very, very old has come something deliciously new.
  5. Sep 24, 2015
    The Frenchman leaves enough space for everything to live harmoniously together. Melodies and countermelodies run free, but nothing ever feels overblown or unnecessary.

    The album is indulgent, but put together with so much detail and care that there really should be a film made around it.

    Such is the breadth of ideas and chutzpah here that you can even forgive Godin for having the temerity to name one track Bach Off. [Oct 2015, p.89]
