  • Summary: The trio from Brooklyn and Philadelphia releases its latest album.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 11 out of 14
  2. Negative: 0 out of 14
  1. John Schmersal's noisy, scratchy guitar (he performed the same duty for Brainiac in the '90s) and Toko Yasuda's honey-smooth vocals (which deliver the big hooks) seem like an odd contrast on paper, but work perfectly.

    While Grass Geysers…Carbon Clouds shows that Schmerse is still refining and fucking with his most primal pop tendencies, it’s most impressive because this time around, it’s not just Enon that makes the record special.
  3. They’ve evolved into a tightly wound and grotesquely attuned power trio; and nowhere is that more evident than on the hyper-bpms of Grass Geysers.
  4. So the record fails as a self-sufficient statement, but after eight years of existence Enon has at long last become an entity capable of releasing a great album rather than just a collection of great songs that have little to do with each other.
  5. The case for ...Carbon Clouds as a fine collection of inventive indie songs enthusiastically rendered is undeniable, but if somehow you’re hankering after more than that, well...you get the picture.

    Schmersal's guitar artfully complements the melodies, instead of screeching to compete with them. [Nov 2007, p.118]
  7. This Enon is leaner and more straight-forward--but also more one-dimensional.
