    It’s one of the most considered and thought-provoking electronic albums of the year.

    Akchote can still serve up a dancefloor banger when required. ... Although its on the album's closing track that he discovers the perect balance between artistry and energy, silken-voiced R&B singer Gallant turning Run For Me into a heady EDM ballad that elevates his signature beats to new heights. [Dec 2019, p.115]

    The record feels as if a lot of time has been spent on it – getting the sound just right, making sure the collaborations work – and the result is a triumph from a producer whose sound has lost none of its flair.

    It's a good album, but the standout track is just him alone on Beograd, a swirling big-room French house track, where he is beautifully lost in the beats. [Dec 2019, p.93]

    While Thirst's generous length means it meanders occasionally, it gives SebastiAn plenty of room to show how much he's grown since the early 2010s. Even if his music has slowed down, it's not standing still.

    A great exploration of his sound with some darker elements .
    Beograd is sensational
