"One minute you’re jamming out to a funky, vocoder-heavy tune, and the next you find yourself immersed in a soothing, atmospheric masterpiece. As a debut album, Your Future Awaits is nothing short of spectacular."
"Simply put, damn, this is good. Elegant, classic sounding arrangements, captivating melodies, full, diverse and interesting soundscape. The lead synth work is so, so beautiful."
- The Electroscape
"Your Future Awaits is a synth album that ranges through an auditory landscape that is full of a stunning variety of synth sounds along with a musical sensibility that creates a cohesive expression of emotion. Electron Odyssey’s album is one of my favourites of the year."
- Karl Magi
"The antidote to so much copy-catting and mediocrity in the scene. Very original with a great combination of rock, pop, synthwave and more classic EDM."
- Forever Synth
"Yes there’s plenty of ear pleasing big beats, gargantuan synths and sizzling guitar licks, but there’s also a gentler touch and a hint of melancholy on some tracks, making the album stand out above the usual generic synthwave that often floods the Electronica scene. Highly recommended."
- Homebrew Electronica Show
"Jeff Spoonhower brings his 20 years of experience working in video games to the dazzling synthwave he makes as Electron Odyssey."
