“A melodic crazy quilt of twists and turns, equal parts bombastically indulgent and tuneful.... A very impressive debut!”

— John Collinge, Progression (★★★★½)

“Beautifully crafted songs ... insanely elaborate and yet aggressively melodic ... Orpheus Nine are among the best bands ploughing this ageless furrow.”

— Dom Lawson, PROG

“An absolutely great progressive rock record that restores faith in the genre.... Original musicians playing for their lives and going for their wildest ideas. An instant classic...the album of the year by a magical mile.”

— Greg Jones, ProgArchives (★★★★★)

“A genuine tour de force that is vibrantly alive and exciting, rendered with the urgency and passion of hungry souls dependent on this music for their very survival.... A marriage of clever bravado, elegant finesse, and steadfast conviction...with some of the most exquisite keyboard tapestries this side of Jupiter. Transcendental Circus is a spectacularly enchanting debut from a band whose future brims with promise.”

— Emil Broussard, ProgArchives (★★★★★)

“Ambitious in every way ... an entertaining and refreshing mix of neo- and retro-prog.... Transcendental Circus is a true discovery and Orpheus Nine is one of the most interesting new bands of recent times.”

— Martin Dambeck, Empire
