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.

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.

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.

Instead of urban-style beats, 'Cosmogramma' gives us some completely fresh and otherworldly beats here along with a noticeable jazz influence. Especially with this album, the sound design is masterful.

Favourite tracks: Pickled!, Do the Astral Plane, Drips//Auntie's Harp
