“There are a handful of albums in my life that hit me the way this album did. For me it sits in a small group of very special musical experiences: David Byrne and Brian Eno’s My Life in the Bush of Ghosts, Bill Bruford’s Feels Good to Me, NIN’s Downward Spiral, and King Crimson’s Discipline.” —Reeves Gabrels (David Bowie, The Cure)
“A fantastic, essential rock album. Several of its ten mini-epics explore the precarious state humanity finds itself at the present moment, with deep insight, humor, and wit—not to mention some ferocious playing from an avant all-star ensemble.” —Anil Prasad, Innerviews
“An imaginative progressive rock-oriented release … The songs are rich in sonic texture, and with panoptic social political messages that require a close listen … a delightful milestone.” —Mark Redlefsen, All About Jazz
“Cleveland stitches world fusion, ambient, avant metal, and psychedelia together into a glorious progressive tapestry. This is pretty amazing stuff, and one of the better prog releases this year.” (Score: 15/16) —Warren Barker, Progression
“Hologramatron has really bowled me over, so much so that yesterday I had to remain sitting in the car long after I arrived at my destination and long after the complete album had finished playing … An artistic rock album in the best sense of that term, with multilayered influences … Exciting from start to finish … Honestly, this year I have not heard a better album.” —Sal Pichireddu, Babyblaue-Seiten
“In other news, I recently received a copy of Barry Cleveland’s Hologramatron, new on Moonjune Records. I listened to it five times yesterday, and serial listening is rare for me. While it is not overtly avant, I think it is a great release.” (Pick of the Week) —Mike Borellas, Avant Music News
