    Despite its clever syntheses, there are times when it's not much more than pretty. But the good is not only good, it's promising.

    This may not be as exciting as people expected, but it’s detailed, coherent, and worth a spin.

    For Years feels like the natural conclusion to the quest he quietly started back in 2010.

    In collecting the a-sides from both of his 2012 singles and propping them up with another half-hour's worth of songs, Airhead's debut full-length only makes that stylistic restlessness more frustrating.

    For Years is at its best when Airhead is working in the first of these modes, the more melodic one.

    Overall, McAndrews’ solo endeavor is a strong first impression that explores post-dubstep twists and turns in awe-inspiring fashion, though over saturation in places makes the record difficult to completely comprehend.

    A quiet clamor, with all the charm of a downmarket frisée, For Years favors sound design over songcraft, its sullen atmospheres betrayed by gaseous mass.
