    Given a fuzzed-out, subterranean production glaze, Butter filters everything from surf and lounge touches to Spaghetti Western flourishes, but is best when spinning cool pop hooks up out of the muck. [Oct 2012, p.87]

    Butter not only betters their signature sound, it finally makes it sound concise.

    With Eno at the controls, the Turbo Fruits straighten up, fly right and in the process bash out their most enjoyable work to date.

    An unchallenging, unsurprising, and un-garage-y joy, but a joy nonetheless.

    The whole thing is less bratty than 2009's Echo Kid.

    Stein and Brock still seem to be working out their garage and pop influences in their guitar work; they don't deliver a fully satisfying fusion of their influences, but instead split the difference between jangle and crunch, watering it all down in the process.

    The wild abandon, lo-fi to the point of being muffled style is Butter's main appeal. It is also its downfall. [Aug/Sep 2012, p.122]
