    I personally can't seem to give the credit to them. They are so heavily influenced by My Bloody Valentine that it would be quite unfair to praise them for just taking other's ideas to electronics and releasing it. Sorry, it's either hook or crook and I must say this is the latter of the two.

  1. For all its reference points, it's a remarkable and original record.
  2. [A] sublime soundtrack to dancing in the moonlight. [21 Jan 2005, p.88]
  3. For every breathtaking melodic rush like Don't Save Us From the Flames, with its guitars whizzing and whooshing like fireworks, there is a piece of portentous tosh like Moonchild, which calls to mind Spinal Tap and a scale model of Stonehenge.
