  1. 9.2 |   Paste Magazine

    Something to get lost in, a long stroll free of the noise of modernity where the little details can draw near and take your breath away with their simple beauty

  2. 9.1 |   Pretty Much Amazing

    It’s his most discordant work since 1997’s Zauberberg, but it feels reassuring rather than terrifying

  3. 8.5 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    Voigt continues down a similar path with a rich, cinematic effort of blooming ambient music

  4. 8.0 |   All Music

    While Rausch initially doesn't feel like quite as much of a momentous occasion as Narkopop did when it first arrived, it certainly isn't any less beautiful, and holds up to repeated listens as well as anything else in the project's essential discography

  10. 7.5 |   Spectrum Culture

    Rausch suggests a collapse between the club and natural spaces

  11. 7.0 |   Uncut

    Restrained, foreboding and ultimately effective. Print edition only

  12. 7.0 |   Exclaim

    Although GAS's sound starts to sound a bit dated, Voigt can still be applauded for his approach to storytelling and patience in constructing his electro-orchestral worlds
