  1. Another immensely satisfying release. [#8, p.108]
  2. 'Ariels,' which never raises above shuffling pace, is beautiful in places. [28 Aug 2004, p.56]
  3. 70
    They've surpassed most of their contemporaries to climb right to the top of the chill-out tree. [Sep 2004, p.104]
  4. The results are mixed. [Oct 2004, p.121]
  5. 40
    [A] disappointing move into bland, dinner-party-backdrop territory. [Nov 2004, p.106]
  6. Represents an ill-advised body swerve from the duo’s idiosyncratic home territory and plunges them deep into the thoroughly becalmed waters of MOR ambient pop, offering up languid, beats-driven, down-tempo tunes that aren’t so much radio-friendly as downright sycophantic.
