    Worse than mediocre faux-80s pop punctuated by ear-splittingly shrill noises for no particular reason. What is the point of any of this? Neither the songwriting nor the production are impressive.

    What an irritating record. So much that it would be irritating to write a review about it. Typical indie overglorification of white boy mediocrity. Get it together, Pitchfork.

    Anxiety has a healthy appetite for evasiveness, an intimately layered R&B disc that never lets the listener rest too comfortably.

    Many of the songs feel like they're improvised by someone with an encyclopedic knowledge of vocal pop music.

    Anxiety is the rare electro-pop album that's wholly synthetic, but plays without a hint of icy artificiality. [No. 96, p.53]
