    Far from being austere, though, the cavernous riffs of ‘November’ or undulating synth pulses of ‘Phoenicia’ are like a warm blanket of comforting sound, while more direct and urgent Joy Division-esque kickers like ‘Complicated’ lurk elsewhere.

    Trentemoller's flawless ear for melancholy, melodicism and atmospheric drama gives Fixion the feel of a soundtrack to a gothic/cyberpunk indie film and provides further evidence of its creator's electropop mastery. [No. 135, p.61]

    As a whole, Fixion is a logical progression for Trentemøller, whose music seems to cinematically expand and contract while remaining true to his chosen bailiwick.

    His fourth album doesn't really sound like a club set at all. [Oct 2016, p.113]

    Fixion is not a traditionally cohesive record. It does not flow as whole, in fact it is all over the place, joined only by a sense of sonic darkness. But for a chameleon like Trentemøller, creativity is his cohesion, formula the enemy--and this is his most creative, experimental record yet.

    Overall, the ambition and freedom of earlier work found on The Last Resort and Into The Great Wide Yonder is reigned in, and the melodic palette is less variegated and more darkly shaded, leaving you a little uptight. [Aug-Sep 2016, p.76]

    His female vocalists, including Jehnny Beth of Savages, are spirited, but they are scuppered by melodies that never grab your collar. The only respite from Ian Curtis et al is when the Cure are pastiched instead, as on River in Me, which splices Lullaby’s unmistakable plucked strings with Killing an Arab’s punk tempo.
