    Criminal Heaven is an infectious, off-kilter, damn near perfect indie-pop album that manages to effortlessly cover a bizarrely large plot of musical territory. [#86]

    This "less is more" approach shows off the wealth of songwriting these two have cultivated in their other projects, and makes Criminal Heaven a beautifully blissful debut that is warm, comforting, and typically Swedish in the best way possible.

    Olenius and Krunegard have created pop soundscapes that bridge the organic with the synthetic, focusing on vocal melodies and harmonies often over electronic or spacey backdrops. [Jun 2012, p.157]

    Criminal Heaven is a band doing incredible things half of the time and okay things the other half.
