    Uniqueness is a feature mentioned too often while talking about somebodyâ

    Fantastic album, they were able to create a more accessible sound while retaining what made them unique in the first place. Glass Jar is 11 minutes of pure bliss.

    I don't like this album, it is messy, not cohesive, sometimes it is even creepy. It just does not make sense at all to me. Please try again and do something better.

    Not feeling the album at all, it definitely isn't what I was expecting, they're are not there yet. Try again please and come back with something good that I can enjoy...

    See a review from a Brazilian site (in portuguese)
    "You can count on the presence of this album in many best of 2011 lists and if you listen to it very carefully, be sure that it will also be in your favorites from this year"

    Nigh on perfect with its shimmering polyrhythms. Album of the summer (at least)? I think so. It's such a fresh way of merging existing things that I can't think of anything close to it in the recent past, apart from the band themselves obviously and maybe These New Puritans.

    Whatever these folks are on, I want some. This has gone straight into my top 5 for the year, possibly top, and I don't even like synth-based stuff that much. Just wow!

    These guys will blow your mind off. I came expecting an experimental album, it's not really, a dance album, it's not really, a pop album, it's not really. Whatever it is it's gorgeous and singular, like someone made a round the world trip and returned to make alien sounds with what they'd heard.

    Absolutely stunning. If only every other band could attain such levels of progression and innovation, the world would not have any more musical landfills.

    It's a concise, tidy sounding album, with little of the noise leakage of old. [May 2011, p.51]

    While no commercial crossover will be gained from Eye Contact, Gang Gang Dance have released one of the most captivating albums of the year, each song different yet cohesive, challenging and ultimately highly rewarding.

    The Eastern motifs on Infinty are trite. Ultimately, it's not enough to derail this engrossing record. [Jun 2011, p.116]
