    The band's ability to properly play together more than justifies the album's title, an archaic English word for feeling pleased. [Jun 2013, p.109]

    On a technical level, Wolf People are a competent outfit but, for all its repetition, it doesn’t leave much of a dent in the brain.

    The album loses its confidence through multiple exhibitions of mundane excess, fracturing the dexterity to hold up over time, and proving that not everyone can focus in deep isolation.
