    Emika's unique sound is eerily evocative of both Prague in the early 20th century and Bristol in the 24th century. Her deliberately dispassionate, sometimes replicant-like voice is often backed by a stark chorus of beats and her dark, distorted, minor key piano compositions that show off her Czech heritage and influences. An album that should make both Burial and Leoš Janáček proud.

    Cognitive distortion is all over Emika and can at times be sublime... [However] there are points on the album meant to pierce that don't hit hard enough and moments of unease which seem swamped down by the overproduction muck.

    12 fascinating electro-symphoic constructions informed by dubstep and Delia Darbyshire's BBC Radiophonic Workshop experiments. [Nov 2011, p.103]

    Be it the furious pounding bass of the dubstep angle she toys with, or the amorphous dark ambient she seems to wallow in, whatever led you to Emika's debut LP will also leave you breathless.
