    The result, while a bit surprising, is entirely satisfying.

    The result is an electronic, ambient-tinged, evenly paced universe of 10 tracks. [#40, p.76]

    By the end of the album, most of the momentum is gone, and closer "My Forevers" is really just "The Return of When I Was Twenty Nine" but sampled with the melody from "Scissors," which means that there's really only eight (and a half?) songs with good, original content.

    There's tons of potential here, even if the disc feels like a work in progress.

    [Often the album] leads to pleasant but forgettable songs, leaning toward Britpop.
