    The remainder of In Limbo colonises the liminal space between harmony pop and spacecraft noise with giddy style. [Oct 2012, p.86]

    The songs are dense and trebly, swirling and mutating but rarely growing, and too often staying way past their welcome. There are plenty of worthwhile ideas, but a seasoned producer could strategically shave 20 minutes off the album while losing little.

    It's easy to get caught up in TEEN's dreams without completely falling asleep, a tough act to follow with so many similar acts just simply getting lost. [#90, p.61]

    When TEEN hits on a groove -which happens most of the time-their music compels you right along.

    Overall, the tinny, sterile production (there is nothing lush about the sounds on In Limbo, nor is there supposed to be) and the fresh take on psychedelic and indie rock sounds pretty fine.

    Complete with gorgeous harmonies and an intricate wall of sound that is somehow both delicate and powerful, the only thing that keeps Lieberson from succeeding outright is that most of the tracks clock in at around six minutes long.

    There's enough variances in the sound, with the tracklisting set up in such as way that you notice the changes in style, to make sure you pay attention to every minute.

    TEEN still manage to come out strong and fully formed on their debut, with In Limbo proving to be the working man's take on dream pop.

    There's a little something for everyone on In Limbo, and all just a little off from what you'd expect. For a debut album, that's a massive accomplishment.

    At the very least, In Limbo shows that the band can do a lot of things well, and while this set of songs isn't exactly scattered, TEEN's ambitions lead them to be less cohesive than they might have been had they picked one direction and stuck with it.
