    This album is kinda beautiful but not enough. It is mostly made of sharp harsh sounds that have been smoothed over during production. The most colourful and pretty track of the album is the title track, Bécs. It is similarly harsh, though, it has a nicer chord progression that adds more character to it. I probably wouldn't bother telling anyone about this album unless someone was looking for something unusual that's not typical to their taste. Kinda dystopian sounding. Expand

    The soundtrack to blissful bucolic afternoons threatened by the black clouds of the coming apocalypse. [Jul 2014, p.95]

    Becs is something of a return, then, but equally it demonstrates that the guitarist's approach to pop composition has developed considerably over the past 13 years. [May 2014, p.83]

    It captivates and betrays the listener who, unaware of the deceitful plan, falls victim of the most heinous crime in art: representation through deconstruction.
