A.V. Club

Flying Lotus reaches into the past in order to create something clearly of the future – a hybridized work that challenges others to follow its dazzling blueprint.

90
PopMatters

Flying Lotus, much like Yorke, Greenwood & Co., has made a definitive summary of a decade’s worth of advances in electronic music, a release that transcends genre and deserves to become a glorified phenomena by those who experience it.

80
Drowned in Sound

Cosmogramma is dense and devotional, Ellison piloting his craft into the fading slipstream of his aunt Alice Coltrane’s cosmic strain of jazz.

80
AllMusic

Cosmogramma is an instrumental genre-jumping journey for head-bopping intellectuals, and the meditative melodies by vocalists Thundercat, Laura Darlington, and Thom Yorke only add to the experience.

Completely unexpected. One of the most gorgeous and inventive albums I've ever listened to. This is an artist that could [and did] sample a table tennis match. In my opinion completely unmatched as far as production.

Just try closing your eyes in a dark room, and giving this album a full spin. Every track is a whole new world. There's something new to be heard and discovered on every listen.

I have a hard time thinking of instrumental music better than this. In my opinion, his best so far, along with You're Dead!

Love the diverse instrumentation on this album. Though I feel that the first three tracks are a bit out of place, the record as a whole is exciting from start to finish and is a big step up from FlyLo's first two full-length releases.
