“This is 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."
READ ANIL PRASAD'S IN-DEPTH FEATURE INTERVIEW WITH BARRY ON INNERVIEWS!“The songs are rich in sonic texture, with panoptic social political messages that require a close listen … a delightful milestone from an artist with much more yet to say.”
—Mark Redlefsen, All About Jazz
“Barry Cleveland takes his music to another dimension with Hologramatron. His compositions, arrangements, and guitar work are a fusion of fusions, as he masterfully treads into ambient, avant-garde metal, psychedelia—even protest music. And the layers of sonic energy that emerge are wondrous."
—Warren Barker, Progression
“I listened to Hologramatron five times yesterday, and serial listening is rare for me." (Pick of the Week/Runner Up for Best Album of 2010)
—Mike Borellas, Avant Music News
“Honestly, this year I have not heard a better album."
—Sal Pichireddu, Babyblaue-Seiten
“Layers and layers of ominous energies float and coruscate, wilding lines lilt and glow, the entire affair brings back the halcyon era of vitamin L and Mary Jane, nights given to opium dreams and cloudtripping.”
—Mark S. Tucker, F.A.M.E.
“Ominous arrangements that betray hints of everyone from Robert Fripp to Tool to (even) the Residents abound on the disc, but they’re somehow presented in an accessible fashion.”
—Bill Kopp, MusicScribe
