    This is a record that comes close to realising the vision Laufman laid out two years ago. This star is finally back on track. [Jun-Jul 2013, p.91]

    He should be tired after creating an album in a voice so insularly his. That insularity can make tracks blend together some, but Laufman’s genre-collaging and quirky point of view make Id a compelling listen.

    In his honest debut Id, Chris Laufman, the mind behind the joyous noise-pop project Wise Blood, nobly outlines the neurotic impulses of those of us who don’t have a seat at Miley Cyrus’s lunch table.

    Disappointedly, the glut of sampled soundbites, from an engine starting to gurgled vocals, tend to grate, distracting from the flow of the album, which also sadly lacks a standout track of the magnitude featured on previous Wise Blood releases.

    If you’re going to study O’Connor, stick with the short stories. For clever electronic pop, start anywhere but here.
