    There's more than enough here to satisfy aficionados of offbeat, fiercely inventive pop music.

    How long before the next Vek release remains to be seen, but Leisure Seizure will be stuck in your head long after you quit listening.

    His more emphatic, aggressive muse is unique and subtly disquieting. [Jul 2011, p.96]

    Unfortunately, Vek's voice outstays its welcome by the middle of the album. Leisure Seizure is front-loaded with its best material, such that the second half of the record becomes rather tedious.

    With Leisure Seizure, Vek doesn't retool his sound much -- slabs of jittery synths underpin his urgent yelps, which start to grate over 12 tracks.

    Nobody else writes songs like him. Alas, the twentysomething has a voice only a mother could truly love.

    Like a brand-new gadget, it might look smart but Leisure Seizure's obsolescence is built-in. [July 2011, p. 103]
