    From captivatingly woozy opener State Of new York to the languid euphoria of Everything, this challenging but addictive record cocoons the listener in chloroformed candy floss. [May 2011, p.109]

    A small and totally unpolished gem, sparkling and anti-lapidary.

    A discordant, but strangely beautiful, experiment from the outer fringes of pop. [May 2011, p.93]

    An expansive work that fills no niche.

    Chopped gives a thrilling, real-time glimpse into one of indie's true adventurers creating her legacy on the fly.

    As it is, it feels like dead patches make up almost half of Chopped & Screwed. Shelve it next to the Knife's Tomorrow, in a Year as an effort that hearteningly shows an inspired artist staking out bold terrain, but one that only fitfully delivers the impact of the artist's previous, pop-focused work.

    If Chopped & Screwed implies that Micachu and the Shapes want to obscure their relation to the still wonderful Jewellery, then this album isn't just difficult and unsatisfying--it's unfortunate.
