    Barring a few notable tracks, this debut from Snaith under the Daphni name, fails to coalesce into anything resembling the creative designs of his previous records.

    It's a job well done.... But a few tracks sound too much like functional mix fodder. [Nov 2012, p.91]

    Jiaolong speaks in a more comprehensible language because it's not florid psych-pop, but as with Caribou, I do not see a way to become anything other than a spectator of this music.

    In totally brushing aside the complexities of Caribou in order to make dance music, he loses sight of the more complex moments in the dance music he's making.
  5. 60
    There's a rhythmic directness here, and a desire to have a good time, that's not exactly absent from Caribou but pulling harder at the leash now.
