Nagrany w samotności album kochanego producenta, który tym razem dużo gra tu na „żywych” instrumentach i bawi się dźwiękami, ale jakby na smutno. Jak sam pisze: to „mrok, z którego można jednak się wydostać”.

“‘Cenizas’ is an LP of significant gravitas from an artist with among the largest and most engaged followings in electronic music” - Resident Advisor (8/10)
“Given all the technical ground ‘Cenizas’ covers, Jarr is an impressively meticulous guide. Every pluck, ping, buzz, scratch, and whistle is intentional, a bump in the tunnel as you slide down the rabbit hole.” - Pitchfork (8.0)
“Jaar’s music has always been deeply preoccupied with atmosphere, and ‘Cenizas’ is a deeply atmospheric album. It sounds like a void. As you listen, you feel like you could fall into it and never find your way out.” - Loud & Quiet (9/10)
