    Rarely has whimsical weirdness been done with such finesse.

    Here are miasmic, dizzyingly gorgeous songs built on the grandest and most romantic, but steadied by the hand of hook-loving classicists. Bravo! [Mar 2010, p.90]

    Their album Eggs was recorded in settings ranging from cathedrals to bathtubs, and has as broad of a stylistic range, evoking comparisons to both MGMT and Billy Corgan. But their grandiosity anchors the record.
  4. With Eggs, Oh No Ono have created an album that, like Animal Collective's Merriweather Post Pavilion this time last year, allows you to forget the last vestiges of snow outside and look towards the summertime.
  5. Even when it slides and swivels to defy all definition, Eggs can be remarkably engaging if given the chance of repeat listens.
  6. This isn't the kind of stuff you're going to walk around humming. It's too weirdly shaped to really abide in you--you have to be willing lose yourself in it instead.
  7. 60
    There is much to love here, just as much to hate, and nothing to be indifferent about. [Mar 2010, p.99]

    If you like MGMT, psychedelic/acid rock, or any type of enjoyable music that really has depth and requires listening to a lot, listen to If you like MGMT, psychedelic/acid rock, or any type of enjoyable music that really has depth and requires listening to a lot, listen to this. It's a psychedelic trip of such incredible depth, you'd be forgiven for thinking you were flying through space. Amazing. Expand

    "Eggs" was released in Denmark back in May last year - and it has dazzled me ever since. This record is a true piece of art.
