    This is bliss, it's that simple.

    If you like your music with the psychedelic layers of The Field and subtle atmospherics of Joy Orbison, Blondes have so much to give.

    You're probably not going to find another record quite so beautifully produced this year, or quite so warmly inviting, or just quite so full of lovely stuff.

    Despite retaining a relaxed, lightly psychedelic feel, Blondes' songs are properly functionalist grooves.
  5. Overall, while Blondes' debut album isn't quite as dynamic as the EP, it still serves its purpose as a notable standout from the upstart duo.

    The meandering, incidental quality of their music works alternately in their favor and against them.
  7. 60
    Blondes need to hone themselves-become harder, better, faster, stronger-if they wish to become memorable, to stand out in listeners' minds as something tangible and unique.
