  1. It would be unfair to dismiss the record completely, however, as there are definite highlights.

    Their third album is another bony bundle of modern neuroses. [Apr 2009, p.108]

    Klang is a step in the right direction. [May 2009, p.69]
  4. While none of the hooks on Klang prove sharp enough to catch on the first spin, enough usually happens that inclined listeners will be content to explore the tangents and detours packed into each of these three-minute slices of danceable post-punk until they do.

    The group's final album (they broke up in October) still punches like a champ, with sharp bursts of intelligent energy.

    Much better than their last album. Lean, mean, and very tuneful (after a couple listens).

    Full of energy, like the first record, and catchy melodies like on the second one - great.
