  1. Hush not only breaks down new barriers for the band, but more importantly, is just a pleasure to listen to.
  2. 80
    The dozen tunes here are sumptuous slices of bliss-pop with an art-punk edge. [Mar 2009, p.78]
  3. This is a strong, satisfying record that will comfortably consolidate the band’s reputation as a genre favourite.
  4. Despite their gift for undeniably soothing melodies and luminescent keyboard and guitar textures, the duo’s album falls into the “grower” category, and it’s possible that less resilient listeners won’t stick around to be dazzled by its early morning shimmer.
  5. Hush finds the band careening dangerously close to the realm of pastiche. [Winter 2009, p.69]
  6. Here, vocalist Yuki Chikudate's stacked, reverberating vocals sparkle like the glint of light off of fresh morning dew. [Apr 2009, p.134]
  7. Time and time again, songs begin promisingly only to disappear into themselves, or emerge with a striking bridge in the middle of nothing.
