    A hidden gem in a murky quagmire of landfill non-entities.

    This is a strong body of work from the London-based group who have taken the best of '90s guitar music and made it their own.

    While not overly original, this album more than compensates for compositional complacency with its energetic delivery.

    It's a short and sweet affair, clocking in at just over half an hour, but Splashh don't need any longer than that to make their stamp.
  5. This is not the carefree record Splashh were expected to make, but it is all the better for its dourness.

    They run short on tunes during the album's second half, but by powering through 10 songs in 33 minutes they at least opt to burn-out rather than fade away. [Oct 2013, p.110]

    Constantly waiting for that ever-impending explosion of mind-expanding neo-psychedelic glory, Comfort dissipates feeling hackneyed and burdened by lacklustre platitudes despite the rare flicker of hesitant brilliance.

    A strong piece of psychedelic shoegaze. Perhaps to reliant on chords, more melody would make this album sun kissed perfection to say the least. Splashh have a good base. Expand

    A great debut for something which is a collection of songs the band had written over a year rather than something recorded as a cohesive album. 'All I Wanna Do' is a classic and 'Lost Your Cool' is a good album closer. Expand
