  1. Cut Copy have made a record with an overabundance of ideas and energy and not enough focus.

    At 15 tracks, it outstays its welcome, but in small does this is deliciously addictive. [June 2008, p.86]

    It was a smart move [to enlist Tim,] Goldsworthy's attention to detail forcing the band up a gear. [July 2008, p.101]

    I love this album, it's fun, nostalgic and groovy all at the same time. This is a very clear sound Cut Copy developed since their debut.

    Hugely diverse record. There's rock, pop and dance. It's upbeat, it's glory filled, there's angst, there's melancholy. It's fast, it's slowHugely diverse record. There's rock, pop and dance. It's upbeat, it's glory filled, there's angst, there's melancholy. It's fast, it's slow and, the majority of the time, it all comes together incredibly well. Full Review »

    Beautifully and sympathetically produced, this is a cohesive set of pop songs dressed up as electro/dance. Unashamedly romantic lyrics cutBeautifully and sympathetically produced, this is a cohesive set of pop songs dressed up as electro/dance. Unashamedly romantic lyrics cut through painterly washes of synth, summery acoustic strumming, and the occasional rave-up sound effect. The presence of Tim Goldsworthy behind the boards cannot be underestimated - what a remarkable transformation from their debut! Full Review »
