    The crystalline vocals hint at either uplifting profundity or overblown pomposity--it's hard to say which. [Mar 2013, p.98]

    This all adds up to an ambitious record, the most thematically ambitious of Holopaw's discography, but it's a set that can't quite live up to those lofty goals.

    Orth starts off with a very promising narrative, but soon loses the listener, and himself, in the world he's created.

    The album simply flickers out like a candle, with the faint promise of another visit to this setting.

    After the sparse and pretty "Bedfellows Farewell," which offers a tender counterpoint to virtually every other song on the album, Academy quickly loses steam.
