    It makes you feel like you've stepped into a funhouse built by Picasso out of neon light and awesomeness. [Jun 2012, p.106]

    With Memory, it's apparent that Lazer Sword have toiled over the big picture, leaving little room for twelve-inch singles, all the while crafting an absorbing full-listen.

    Lazer Sword are in full command on Memory, an album that finds them coming into their own as well as exploring new territory.

    Lazer Sword's somewhat gloomy sophomore album does still represent a largely enjoyable body of work that packs in plenty of well-executed ideas.

    It's about as modern an electronic record as you can get. It's pretty much safe to say that 'Memory' won't be fading for a while.

    The energy is different [from previous releases], more mature and refined. [No.87 p.56]

    Well-observed references [to different traditions, including the Detroit techno scene] may outnumber any attempts at innovation by some margin, but that doesn't detract from the pleasure of a defining sound lovingly revisited.
