AllMusic Review by

This English electronic musician has revealed a mature stylistic approach that seemingly blends the influences of Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze while retaining a central focus on melodious and romantically inclined themes. From symphonic progressions to passages which are spacey and ethereal to the emotional undercurrent which ties it all together through the use of sweet strings and angelic voices, Wright consistently explores these cosmic atmospheres, most notably in the two 20-minute marathons, "Syntasia" and "Marilynmba," both of which linger in your mind long after the final chords have drifted off into space. His balancing act between rhythmic, percussive elements and ambient, atmospheric styles is really quite marvelous, and to top it off, Wright evolves his own unique style through it all, with adventurous exercises into abstract territory that conveys spontaneity and warmth.
