“Vitolo surely has some fine variation woven into the fabric of his pieces, ranging from modest to loud but more typically somewhere in between both ends, but he likes his music to be very present; there is quite some detail to be spotted in this music, yet it is also sonically rich. Quite a fine release, this one” [Vital Weekly]

“Altogether the album is a vast collection of many possible points of view over the intersection between man and machine, where every piece a fulfill a precise functional purpose in the shaping of a conscious and satisfying dramaturgy that keeps the listener engaged from top to bottom.” [Toneshift.net]

“Suono che muta e si espande senza sosta, flusso indefinito che al pari della luce concretizza superfici attraverso il suo interagire con la materia.” [SoWhat]

“L’impatto é devastante… un insieme estremamente preciso di onde sonore generate da processi creativi che prendono forma utilizzando gli strumenti tradizionali e le loro capacità nel diffondere suono se sollecitati non convenzionalmente… Una trasfigurazione musicale che fa da introduzione e contrasto alla dura e vera sostanza noise sprigionata dall’uso massivo della componente digitale… il noise ora é pura esperienza sensoriale che aumenta la percezione delle cose e permette di confrontarsi con culture apparentemente distanti e ostiche rispetto alla nostra.” [Sherwood]

“Anacleto riesce a de-referenzializzare il suono svestendolo dei panni di un modermismo forzato. Al contempo riesce a dargli un tocco di esoterica cupezza, come fosse una cattedrale gotica…Una musica estenuante ma affascinante” [Blow Up Magazine]
