  1. An intriguingly woozy melange of out-of-focus vocals, feedback squalls and metronomic beats, everything coming together just so on the compelling 'Nothing Ever Happened.' [Nov 2008, p.121]
  2. 60
    Much of this album sounds like its been stitched together from 4AD's finest moments. [Dec 2008, p.88]
  3. Deerhunter's latest features more pop melodies and fuzzy soundscapes, forsaking the raw, intense sound we all love.

    Really a remarkable album; i would argue that this was my favorite of the decade.
