    Despite its imperfections, Light Asylum is a must-listen for those interested in synth-pop or the Brooklyn scene in general, and Light Asylum are a band worth keeping on the radar.

    Funchess' extraordinary voice will get much attention, but this is the full package.

    There is a willful lack of originality on the album in so much as at times it has such a faithful synth-pop sound that you'd be forgiven for thinking it's a 1980s reissue.

    Light Asylum is intimidating, but the band's goth pop comes with an undeniable groove that's still easy to enjoy.

    Light Asylum works best if approached as a work of fantastic campness; after all, this would explain the whip-cracking sound effects on IPC.

    It's clear that this band has focused too much on referencing and too little on songwriting.

    An experiment in performance art that'll put you in touch with your inner Brian Sewell. [Jul 2012, p.105]
