Trajectories is an absolute beauty. It’s a complex and an easy listen at the same time. Seventeen tracks that make a complete work of art. Listening to this album for me is like watching an artist create on a canvas in front of me. Michael has a way of telling a story with every key he strokes.
— Jlin, on her Favorite Album of 2017

“Trajectories feels like a journey, its stark suites and standalone frugging and pirouetting like candle flames, searing their resolute essences into memory .”
