    [A] rich, dark collection of songs.

    Piano and guitars soar vertiginously; lyrics are bittersweet or pleasingly surreal. [Apr 2013, p.98]

    This group's self-titled album creates a warm and fuzzy slow burn akin to the glory days of weird post-rock bands like Karate, Lungfish, and Regulator Watts. [Apr 2013, p.88]

    While somewhat brief with just seven songs, there's more than enough diversity on Deathfix to keep things interesting throughout.

    Deathfix gets its expansive, laid-back feel from the relaxed conditions under which it came together, but that's also the source of its occasional directionlessness.

    Doing away with the big guitars and lean hooks that the label has championed so adamantly over the years, Deathfix settles warmly into a pleasant, melodic ’70s pop groove, one colored with plentiful flourishes and textured arrangements.

    There is splendid piano-pop, leanly recorded excursions in cosmic prog, and evidence of an occasional charming eccentricity. [Jun 2013, p.71]
