    In 2012, the album is still an impressive achievement and cements the trio's place as the absolute best band of shoegaze revivalists operating.

    With nothing masking itself as filler here, it would be difficult to trim anything off without Mauve losing any of its impetus or impact. Indeed there's very little negative to say.

    With strong, fully realized statements such as Mauve, Ringo Deathstarr are making a strong case for being one of the most vital bands in shoegaze today.

    It's 2012, and the lush expanse of Mauve, both feet planted in 1991, still has the ability to spread over you slowly and entirely, like a veil of noise.

    It's as if Swervedriver never left us. [Nov 2012, p.103]

    'Mauve' isn't a bad album. It's competently made, it's mixed pretty well. It's done well. But it's been done before, and better.
