    The time when even twitter goes quiet and the world belongs to the insomniacs, the troubled and the drunk, all of who will find solace in the Thurlows' urber-moody noisepop. [2 Jun 2012, p.53]

    2:54 is deep and dramatic, taut and poised. It stands up to repeat listens with a unperturbed grace and a wonderful habit of showing you something new and unheard each time.

    '2:54' is the sound of two Fallen Angels back to steal what's left of your soul; it's sultry, it's mischievous, and it's damn near magnificent.

    2:54 have delivered a collection of deeply mature and addictive tracks. In avoiding their own hype they have created something almost naively unaffected, and purely affecting.

    This is an album that rings with the honed precision and craftsmanship of a job thoroughly done.

    2:54 have made a debut album that pulls you in, immerses you and haunts you ever so slightly.

    [The album's] drifting momentum makes 2:54 a lot like taking a trip on a train, allowing listeners to simply sit back and enjoy the scenery without needing to think too much about how they're getting from one end of the journey to the other.

    An album of huge promise rather than an instant classic - 2:54's time will come.

    2:54 falls short of being a truly great album because each song just starts to sound the same.
