    "No One Can Ever Know" is the third, industrial and somewhat darker than its predecessor "The Wrong Car" album from Scottish band The Twilight Sad. They still relies on melodic indie rock - on the album used mainly synth backgrounds and slightly electronic inserts ("Sick", "Do not Move"), highlighted role of the bass in "Do Not Look At Me" and much more spontaneous "Another Bed" or"No One Can Ever Know" is the third, industrial and somewhat darker than its predecessor "The Wrong Car" album from Scottish band The Twilight Sad. They still relies on melodic indie rock - on the album used mainly synth backgrounds and slightly electronic inserts ("Sick", "Do not Move"), highlighted role of the bass in "Do Not Look At Me" and much more spontaneous "Another Bed" or introduced piano theme in "Not Sleeping". Despite all of these treatments, compositions seem awfully similar to each other, sometimes even dull. What's more vocal line - which also not everyone will relish - only completes this feeling.

    It's been a long time since their debut album was released in 2007 and maybe nostalgia is working against them, but No One Can Ever Know can barely keep the walls interested.

    [Producer Andrew Weatherall] helped bring out a kind of claustrophobic, harmonic distortion. [Mar 2012, p.113]
  3. They do doom and gloom very well, and more importantly, offer their own unique slant on the sound rather than sound like Joy Division clones.
