    There are a few moments when all the backward glancing becomes a bit heavy-handed, but in their most inspired moments, Blouse find the connection between the limits of outdated technology and the terrible bliss of desiring something impermanent.

    Taken as a whole, Blouse is a more promising debut than a satisfying one, but its standout moments leave listeners wanting more.

    Blouse avoids dismissal as just another '80s dream pop group with a consistent, sophisticated grasp of the genre's tenets.

    There are moments of brilliance; sketches on a theme but with no real conclusion.

    If there's a flaw in the design of Blouse, it's that sometimes it can feel too disconnected, too frosty.

    Blouse may have inadvertently produced one of the most notable, truly unencumbered reflexive turns on the genre (and almost necessarily by extension, its subculture) in recent memory.
  7. Blouse are a promising, if yet to be fully realized, project.
