"Pleroma has it all: drama, emotion, moving power ballads, captivating lyrics and catchy rocks songs with just enough dark edge and pop hooks to ensnare new fans….Emotionally draining yet beautifully arranged. Sharp yet delicate. Raw yet soothing. Symphonic rock with an eastern twist, at it’s most elegant level. Vajra’s Pleroma is simply superb!" –Rick Jamm, Jamsphere Indie Music Magazine
"I instantly fell in love with this release. There are just some albums that send a chill up your spine and Vajra’s debut Pleroma has achieved this effect.…Everything about this album is fresh and exciting. I live to experience music of this calibre. Vajra’s musical career is just the beginning, and I have a feeling that their future work will be awe-inspiring." –Trystan MacDonald, Lithium Magazine
"[I]f you’d like to lose yourself in rock-induced hypnosis, let Pleroma be your invitation." -Sara Latourneau, Sonic Cathedral Magazine
"As I played Pleroma, the shadows in my den shifted. The grass in the back yard began to hum a blue/green low rumble. ….Each song on Pleroma has its own life and color and ripples across sand mountains to orca-filled seas." -Lisa Waugh, Skallywag Magazine
