"Throughout approximately 45 minutes we roam in the greenest, overgrown gardens, accompanied by soft harp melodies, meandering flutes, and the occasional, upbeat-pounding percussion instruments. From time to time I feel as if Koji Kondo has taken the steering wheel -- which strongly underlines how catchy and accessible this entire effort is ... In its core, How the Garden Grows aims to make the listener at ease through its engaging melodies, smooth pacing, and playful nature samples. Mixing this with the post-impressionist painting The Snake Charmer by Henri Rousseau, makes for an incredible package that is as mysterious as it is alluring." - Charlie, The Sword That Sang (theswordthatsang.blogspot.com/2019/08/mystic-timbre-2019-pan-who-and-what-art.html)

"With Apoxupon’s latest release, ‘How The Garden Grows’, we find the winter season changing to spring, where all living things -- once again -- reach for life, in this Forest Synth magnum opus ... an immaculate album full of surprises and musical details that may take multiple listens to fully grasp what all is going on. However, this is one Forest Synth album that you do not want to pass on and Apoxupon is bringing new light to a genre that is normally filled with eerie and grim medieval tales." - David Loveless, The Dungeon in Deep Space (thedungeonindeepspace.com/2019/09/26/apoxupon-convey-endless-free-spirited-vibes-on-how-the-garden-grows-forest-synth-gem/)

"Albums come along now and again that just scratch a certain itch, this is one such record. Tribal ambient, nature recordings, shades of dungeon synth. Forest Synth ... Moonlit is a favourite." - HiddenObserver, Atmospheres and Oddities (rateyourmusic.com/list/HiddenObserver/atmospheres-and-oddities/)
