Antonio Miranda This concept is on another level.
The clever combination of styles and sounds within rock music provides with unusual diversity. The mastery over the instrumentation just adds up to the nigh-perfect sonic experience that is Pavlov3. Favorite track: Unruhe.

Mark Yachnin I love this album. So much music from two excellent players! It’s a rich study in simultaneous contrasts:
- Powerful and reflective
- Aggressive and cool
- For the mind and body
- Progressive and accessible
My favorite track is “Unruhe”. Highly recommended!

Olivia Oyama A must for any prog/Crimson fans. Fantastic record! That stick player is a goddamn finger ninja! Favorite track: Apophis.

William Brinkmoeller This is music that I expect to be listening to for years. Matt Tate's thundering bass parts and ethereal melodies keep me on the edge of my seat time after time. Don't expect anything in 4/4 time here, but no matter what the time signature is, these are six remarkable compositions that both challenge and entertain me.
