    There are throwaways, but 12 Desperate Straight Lines moves Telekinesis in the right direction.

    While Lines doesn't escape the limits of its genre--a little more substantial than an EP, consistent but not expansive--it plays its role well, and has enough moments to hold up beyond the first couple listens.
  3. 12 Lines is enjoyable enough to be worth its existence without seeming rehashed and a solid improvement over his debut.
