The only thing better than hearing Mettavolution at home, in the dark, might be seeing it played live and vibrantly under hot lights.

The first half of their fifth studio album racing by, a blur of nimble fingers and frills. The second half, a 19-minute exploration of Pink Floyd's Echoes, will divide audiences along prog and classical lines. [May 2019, p.91]
