  1. Cryptacize have made an album that sounds welcomingly familiar for fans of Cohen’s aesthetic, but it won’t likely gain them a much wider fanbase.
  2. It stands alone as an album which is well-rounded--there's not much here which is lacking in quality, but much is lacking oomph.
  3. With their second album, Cryptacize have given us something much more sure-footed, and with a little more depth, than what we’ve heard before.
  4. When their sound tends towards the more coherent and homogeneous (even on the excellent title track) they risk falling victim to an imitativeness, or perhaps simply a lack of aesthetic ambitiousness, that threatens to overwhelm the originality that they bring to the table.
  5. Mythomania’s level of sophistication is not hard to achieve and it certainly does nothing to elevate Cohen’s abilities, his contributions to Deerhoof being markedly superior.

    Cryptacize's latest squanders the band's natural resource: singer Nedelle Torrisi.
