Best math-rock album of 2012
“This album is everything that a math-rock album should be in that it doesn’t try to do too much. All of the tracks have great synergy and the energy remains high from start to finish.

:...The way the melodies jump around the meter with their syncopation and odd rhythmic patterns feels incredibly natural, which only helps make the music even more engaging. The result is an album that is not just musically captivating, but it's also really, really fun." - scenepointblank.com

"... I love to hear a band making technical, interesting, challenging work for themselves that ends up being a ton of fun for listeners. It makes Celebrations a great listen, because even though I couldn’t often tell what was going to come next, I knew it was going to be delightful. And that’s the best type of release." - independentclauses.com
"... Mental Architects show that they have under the hood and now confirm their undoubted talent. However, it still lacks a touch of madness that Celebrations is called nugget or outright masterpiece..." - metalorgie.com
"Mental Architects sound like the gods rule and are a pleasant surprise for those who did not know them already. Depart from Sofia, Bulgaria, they try to run your word with a smile on the lips, because their music is cheerful, funny, puts the charge and gives serenity..." - . benoise.com
