    Where Wolf's songs are sometimes the victim of excess, Vek leaves one struggling to discern what ingredient his songs are missing.

    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.

    If the past had him outcast and an outsider, Leisure Seizure could be ideally marketed with those label heavyweights like a fabric hook-and-loop fastener.

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

    It's well-produced with some nice drums, but it simply has no reason to exist.

    Vek's delivery is anticlimactic and sometimes exasperating. Angular songcraft dies hard.

    Tom Vek's charm has lost its spark. [July 2011, p. 121]

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