    Dracula is a strong, more mature third album. [Oct 2011, p.105]

    Dracula is the sort of successful experiment that comes along too infrequently in modern pop music.

    Mesmerising throughout, it's a beguiling and brilliant listen.

    The album does falter at times. "Extra Fast", "New Feelings", and "Wouldn't Tell" could have used some more development rhythmically. These stand out simply because the other tracks on the album are so catchy, so mesmerizing in their delivery.
  5. Even if it isn't quite as organically endearing as their past work, Dracula successfully retains the same sensational personality that's made them such a must-hear act.

    The end effect is ultimately liberating, letting Nurses explore something more than the late-2000s indie cul-de-sac they'd found themselves in previously.

    Nurses aren't the undead, but Dracula has staying power. [Nov 2011, p.98]

    Dracula gurgles with slower, more experimental moments at times, but the brief drags are balanced out by funky hip-swingers and modern nuggets. [#82, p.59]

    Oregon trio deliver harmonious indie bliss-out. [Oct 2011, p.127]

    There's a weird combination of influences at work here.

    It's Nurses' funky dance pop album, and thankfully they've also conjured up some irresistibly catchy melodies to complement them.

    These mid-tempo songs sap some of the group's natural energy from Dracula.

    Not one drop of Dracula is dance-friendly. In fact, it sounds just as disparate as the last Nurses effort.
