    One can easily be seduced by the pleasant surfaces of the sound into the gloom beneath.

    There are moments when their balance is perfect and the Fleetwood Mac tumble of Feel It Coming Near or the parting-mists of the title track keep their undoubted talents in sharp focus. [Jun 2012, p.111]

    Their second album kicks off with an insistent bass throb and angular drumming....Elsewhere, though, the duo allow their earnestness too much sway, making for deadening solemnity.
  4. Though less folky than their 2010 debut, Blood Speaks sticks to the harmonies and arpeggios formula that made their Jack White-produced "Gastown" single so memorable.
