    Like Barrett and Wilson, Teleman indulge a whimsy that can tip into tweeness. But the melodic repetitions and slightly eerie echo around the guitar line give it a weird edge that works.

    Just like some of the better acts from that period, Breakfast suggests that Teleman’s music will stand the test of time.

    Grown up, spotlessly polished and now with full-fledged circuitry, these pirates are machines now, making Teleman’s debut nothing short of electric.

    For now, these gossamer modernists have created something understated and endearingly elegant.

    Whatever the band's intentions, this is a mostly fun record that stretches into Field Music-like territory with its oddball melodies and gushing harmonies.
  6. 60
    Breakfast, for all its modest attractions, never quite transcends its talented-journeyman origins.

    There's a lot of heartbreak in this album, a lot of nostalgia for the simplicity of pre-pubescence--and a lot of taking refuge in ineffable pop songs, just like these.
