"This album is an astounding piece of work that will find the listener unraveling more elements within each track with each listen while still being accessible from the first go. I would recommend this to all fans of music as I believe it is a great testament to creativity, beauty and skillful execution. It is not perfect as some tracks are a bit weaker than others, but overall not far from it. Allow Floex to invite you into his world of Zorya and be bedazzled." ― SPUTNIK MUSIC

“Here, the ambient parts mix with elements of jazz and sounds of the clarinet. One track takes you on an expedition through your subconscious, only to immediately teleport you from it to a club with a flashing stroboscope. Floex has never slowed down since then, he has become a prominent author of videogame soundtracks and has managed to also join forces with a symphonic orchestra. However, Zorya remains his unsurpassed piece that is the subject of praise even today.” ― HEADLINER

“Musically fearless, far reaching beyond the boundaries of ambient. It combines elements of electronic music and jazz in an entirely hypnotising way, thanks to which ‘Zorya’ also gets better and more interesting with each listen. Instead of having to persuade myself to listen to the next song, I wished that this record would never end. This is a true comeback of the year. This is how a record of the year should sound.” ― MUSICSERVER

“You can feel the freshness and energy on Zorya. I already rank this record among those that will stay in my playlist for a long time. And it won’t disappear from my head just like that either. What’s more, Floex has created a relatively clear and original style for himself. There aren’t many such authors in Czechia and that’s why Floex with Zorya are for me like a shining little star on the sky filled with average, grey and quickly disappearing wannabes. I will look forward to his next work with joy.” ― TRIPHOP
