    The scope here is smaller, the instrumentals keener on serving as a pedestal for the vocals than as a landscape for them to get lost in.

    If no particular tracks pop out from the others, it's as much a testament to the record's consistency as its limited range.

    By the end of the album, the technical ability of Hindman and the lyricism of Versprille feel exhausted, gargled, and outsized by the very same influences that they try to honor in their thoroughly hackneyed attention to 80s Cocteau Twins-inspired rock.

    Pure Bathing Culture have created an ambient watercolour wash, but leave you fruitlessly longing for a brave splash of boldness across the canvas.

    They've created a splendidly polite fusion of Fleetwood Mac and the Cocteau Twins. [Sep 2013, p.86]
