RAVE REVIEWS KEEP COMING IN FOR STRATOSPHEERIUS GUILTY OF INNOCENCE

Prog Archives 

“…all of the music is highly melodic, and just so damn enjoyable to listen to. It is polished, it is powerful, and I find it impossible to listen to it without moving some part of my body. This is infectious, with no cure in sight. The arrangements are tight, everyone bounces off each other, and is one of the most poptastic progressive album one is likely to come across.”

Prognosis.com

Guilty of Innocenceis an album that should please fans of hard and heavy jazz-funk, but the enthusiastic progressive rock fan should also find much to enjoy in it too.”

Dutch website DPRP.net

“Being called the Jimi Hendrix of the electric violin is something Deninzon can be very proud of and he showcases this and more of his talent on his latest release onGuilty of Innocence. The sheer mastery of the instruments and in particular the violin of Deninzon himself is remarkable!”
