"This album is pure eclectic music, everything from space-rock to psychedelic rock to stoner rock to krautrock to straight-ahead metal to even reggae is flawlessly blended into a sonic assault that sounds utterly unique... There has been some fine space-rock albums released in the last couple of years and this is easily one of the best. For fans of Hawkwind, Ozric Tentacles, Pink Floyd, King Crimson, and stonerish,meditational doom like Om. (Score: 9.5/10)" – by Ed Barnard of Doommantia (USA) (September 2011).
"It is psychedelic in nature; that adjective describes both the sound and the unique and refreshing experience which it gives the listener. Once you’ve heard this Serbian dubstep space-rock, you’ll wonder if there was ever any other kind." - by Drew Vreeland of Muzikreviews.com (Score: 4.5/5) (August 2011.)
"If you are in need to hear Hawkwind, Ozric Tentacles, Pink Floyd, King Crimson, Om and Orange Goblin (with note that there can be more) in a single album, Temple of the Smoke’s Against Human Race is your next choice... Temple of the Smoke indicates just how screwed up the world is. But most of all, they justify the statement that they are one of the most talented bands coming out from Eastern Europe in recent years." – by Nikola Savic of Prog Sphere (Score: 5/5) (July 2011).
"Temple of the Smoke can pretty much go wherever they want, and they do precisely that. Temple of the Smoke’s debut is also remarkably cohesive as an album, aided once again by the transitions between tracks and the confidence with which the material is performed." - by JJKoczan of theobelisk.net (November 2011.)
“Taking many varied styles, Temple of the Smoke have managed admirably to weld and weave them into a thoroughly cohesive whole. Each individual track on its own is great; together, they present an epic sonic experience not to be missed for fans of psychedelic spacerock. If you think you don’t need to hear yet another album of instrumental stoner rock, you most definitely do need to hear… Against Human Racewhile it is still smokin’!” - by Pat Albertson of Aural Innovations (February 2012)
“It was hard for me to grasp this album at first. I wasn’t quite so such where it was going. After a few listens though it dawned on me. It’s a psychedelic masterpiece that teeters on the space-prog line while keeping true to stoner rock without all the vocals to get caught up in. This one is a chiller, what I mean by that is sit back, relax and enjoy!” - by Bill Goodman of The Soda Shop (November 2011)
