CRITIC REVIEWS

GIGsoup

With ‘A World Of Masks’ The Heliocentrics have created an album that defiantly refuses to be pigeon-holed. It’s a refreshing listen for its almost bloody-minded individualism; psychedelia it may be, but ‘A World Of Masks’ relies on none of the genre’s cliches.

The Independent

It’s an engrossing set throughout, leading one through the subdued swirls of “Dawn Chorus” to the climax of “The Uncertainty Principle”, another work whose throbbing organ and cavernous twang owe a distinct debt to Can.

AllMusic

This set is drenched in mystery; each track unfolds and transitions seamlessly as it builds and expands, enveloping the listener.

Exclaim!

It all makes A World of Masks the Heliocentrics' most beguiling effort to date.

musicOMH

They continue to build on their obvious ability as musical chameleons, evading capture as they flit from one musical style and approach to another, with hip hop and psychedelia as their common ground.

PopMatters

A World of Masks can be a difficult album to take in all at once, but if you have the time and the focus, it can take your brain places you won’t find on any other album.

God Is in the TV

So whether you want to light up a fat one and nod out to some dirty, funky psychedelics, take a trip back to 1970s Germany, or party like it’s 1999, A World of Masks has you covered. Personally, it leaves me craving a little more focus.

Music for your nervous breakdown. This jazzy-as-hell and psychedelic record compels you to listen. Nothing feels forced and each track contributes album's overall dark, late night feelings.
