    I am very disappointed that I have discovered them so late. They should have been in my music rotation for years. This is a very sophisticated and sublime album that asks you to press the replay button. Their sound is 2013 and it's great to see old hands set the trend for the youth of today. I am now going to go through the catalogue.

    With Fade, they’ve come across ten songs that all sound tight and of course, refreshing, against the backdrop of what might be their most consistent album to date.

    The results are simple, subtle arrangements that highlight their song craft.

    Few among us can craft an album as seamlessly fine as Fade. [Feb 2013, p.51]
