  1. This album is a great start for anyone who leans on the more accessible sides of ambient/indie music.

    Joyful and experimental in equal measure, Fluorescence is an album that challenges you without you even realising.

    While the band introduces new elements with this release, its shoegaze dream-pop still underlies each track, with many familiar experimental tangents scattered throughout.

    Fluorescence boasts some highly refined and not-so-mellow results. [Feb 2011, p.62]

    Fans of the early dream pop stuff may have difficulties accepting a cleaner, more synthesized pop approach.

    The most powerful moments here reimagine their sound at its best without ever retreading. The rest of it, however, glitters far too much for its own good.

    As super cutesy as a Hello Kitty hair-grip. Best avoided, in other words. [Mar 2011, p.101]
