    Germano's gift for conjuring otherworldly melodies is as strong as ever. That said, she's still, and will always be, a niche artist.
  2. As a stepping stone forward and backward, No Elephants preserves her musical legacy while subtly altering her own approach to these sounds.

    More a series of half-drawn soundscapes than actual songs per se, No Elephants comes across as an exercise in the abstract, in which the artist makes almost no attempt to color inside the outlines.

    No Elephants is a gorgeous album, but maybe the most interesting thing about it is the way it bites through the beauty.

    [Her high-pitched vocals] restricts her melodies a bit too much for their own good, and some more dynamic performances near the album's end can't save it from fading in a poof of uneasy effervescence. [No. 95, p.55]

    The samples and some of the lyrics feel a little too controlled, on-message, and conceptual, which is unusual since her songs often tease out the dark emotion in mundane, everyday moments. As a result, No Elephants often feels hermetic and occasionally impenetrably austere.

    Admirable as the craft on display on No Elephants may be, as a listening experience the album is often hard to enjoy.

    No Elephants is a strong if entirely unsurprising record. [Jan-Feb 2013, p.93]
