  1. 83
    Flawless transitions are endemic to the record, and necessary in order to cram this many ideas into an attention-deficit 32 minutes.
  2. 80
    These 32 minutes over nine songs total--a total that could easily qualify the collection a long-ish EP--leave you thirsty for further reverse-engineered fun.

    Sarcastic, ironic--and occasionally infuriating. [Jun 2013, p.95]

    There is nothing here that is particularly new, but when it comes to the many, many contemporary bands who take their influence--either musically or aesthetically--from the eighties, Wampire are at the top of the pile.

    It's chaotic then, but it's also packed with charm. [Jul 2013, p.83]

    The album jumps all over the place, showing little interest in staying true to a single genre or style, but even in the darker, heavier moments these songs are unified by an urge to please and the untamable desire to move onto the next thing as soon as possible.

    This band has a cool concept, one just wishes that it was more band and less concept.
