The "-centrics" albums saw the introduction of current vocalist Loïc Rossetti to the band's lineup, a game changer in their 17 years history. "Anthropocentric" is heavier than its same-year predecessor "Heliocentric", with the crushing 15-minutes openening track duality „The Grand Inquisitor“ part I and II and following track „She Was The Universe“, one of the most-streamed THE OCEAN tracks to date, setting the bar high for the rest of the album. Conceptually, "Heliocentric" and "Anthropocentric" are a comprehensive critique of the legacy of christianity: While "Heliocentric" approaches the topic in a historical-chronological way, the main focus of "Anthropocentric" is the "Grand Inquisitor" chapter in Dostoyevsky's world-famous novel "The Brothers Karamazov", spread out over 3 tracks of the album. Other songs like the serene "The Almightiness Contradiction" take up ideas by Richard Dawkins, the spearhead of modern day's aetheism.

"They combine beautiful orchestral music with post-rock that builds, falls and crushes like you wouldn't believe... This is inventive music, and it should be savoured as such." - Zero Toleance (UK), 5/5 
"Initially quite overwhelming, offering more ideas on one album than some bands manage in a lifetime, but their trajectory continues to fascinate and enthral." Metal Hammer (UK) 8/10
