    Images Du Futur is exciting in a way that few albums manage to be, dangerous and compelling like a first cigarette or fumbled sexual encounter, and nothing here quite seems real.

    This is an album that demands attention. An album that is experiential--at once lo-fi and richly textured--where the listener is a fly on the wall, mesmerised by minor-chord introspections that come in waves – some lap gently; others overwhelm.

    There's a peculiar tension in the way the stripped down electronic and acoustic percussion and Shemie's reverby incantations work together. [Mar 2013, p.89]

    With Images Du Futur, though, the band has stretched into unknown territory while remaining true to its own sound.

    The Montreal quartet has their fingers in many pies, and the combination of noise, space, art and good old rock come together in a mix that creates its own gravitational pull.

    As introverted as this album is, it manages to move the band forward a great deal.

    Images Du Futur lacks the structural rigor and focused ideas of [Clinic], which prevents the album from having a strong impact. [Apr 2013, p.90]
