    This album absolutely sucks compared to the first one. So horribly disappointed.

  1. It’s a middling album that managed to get the best of collective consciousness.

    The follow-up repeats the trick, scattering dreamy pop between industrial soundscapes. [July 2010, p. 129]
  3. The second Crystal Castles may not be as immediately and consistently satisfying as their debut, but it shows that the band has more to offer than just an immediately distinctive--and confining--sound.
