    The Planet works more than well enough as its own insular world, and is hopefully but a taste of more to come.

    All six tracks are solid and do a great deal more to flesh out Macomber's Young Ejecta character while helping us tag along on her journey through time and space. [Nov-Dec 2014, p.68]

    Ultimately, Young Ejecta play with intimacy and distance, loss and rebirth in such compelling ways on The Planet that it feels more like an introduction than a continuation.

    They effortlessly shift between the twinkling and sparse to the thundering and assertive. The Planet continues their crusade of love from their debut album.

    While the jams on this seven-track EP aren’t as extravagant as the winners on Dominae, you get the feeling that this is merely Episode 2 of a continuing project.

    The two musicians match well in terms of overall ethos, but at some points it feels like they just stopped listening to each other, and what should be otherworldly comes clunking to the ground.

    That’s the big problem for The Planet: it’s too morose and humorless to be really good pop music, and too upbeat and cheap to be taken very seriously.
