"It’s a heady release, and some of the changes come across as willfully choppy — playing with expectation in a “now we’re over here!” kind of way — but there’s a marked sense of accomplishment throughout that’s nothing if not well earned."

"Hypertonus liebäugeln mit Psychedelic Rock, obwohl das sicher ein wenig zu tief gestapelt ist, denn „Tidal Wave“ ist so viel mehr. Galant schlagen die Songs unvorhergesehene Haken, was eine rasche Deutung fast unmöglich macht.
Mit Elementen aus Jazz, Funk, Noise und Postrock wagt man einen Spagat, der in Songs wie dem fast schon bezeichnenden ‚Technequal Waltz‘ sowie ‚Expect The Sky Below‘ und ‚Breaking Kadabra‘ beeindruckend elegant gelingt. 12 / 15 Punkten"

"HYPERTONUS agieren nämlich höchst einfühlsam auf allen Ebenen. Die auf ihrer ersten Langspielplatte aufgetragenen Klangfarben sind bunt, aber nicht grell, beispielsweise satt schmatzend während 'Fake Tale Of Modern Hysteria', dann wiederum subtil brodelnd in 'Breaking Kadabra' und schlichtweg flammend schrankenlos im abschließenden Jam 'Phantasmagoria'. - 12 / 15 Punkten"

"The roughly forty two minutes, nine track, album is replete with lengthy compositions, yet none outstay their welcome as Hypertonus fill every nook and cranny with intriguing ideas that carry along the listener in their wake with no extended solo sections, giving the complete release a complexity that the listener can happily go over and re-explore.
There is a maths-rock feel to much of the output which is soothed by a counter-balancing organic flow to the tracks and an LP well worth taking time to discover."
