AllMusic Review by

A full-length album of complex glitch characterized by an almost mathematical sense of cerebralism. Not pretty and definitely not for a celebratory context, Illumination intends itself to be a purposefully challenging showcase for Stavöstrand's intellectual approach to computer-assembled electronic music. Typical of his pre-Reduce releases, which tended to stray far from any sort of accessible rhythmic foundation.
