  1. No Shouts, No Calls isn’t just their most song-based work, it’s also their most romantic.
  2. 84
    Warmer than previous efforts. [#25, p.102]
  3. It's a collection of tiny, almost unnoticeable changes that make this record so much more solid than its predecessors.
  4. On No Shouts, No Calls, the Krautrock-esque sonics of the band's last album have been fused with The Power Out's flair for continental pop, but it's the guitars that sing loudest.
  5. 70
    Aggressive bursts of noise and fantastic harmonic singing make this record sound like the result of a happy accident rather than a long-pondered academic exercise. [Apr 2007, p.94]
  6. 70
    Even when Electrelane ditch the cheer completely, they inspire more smiles than growls. [Jun 2007, p.92]
  7. If the singing improves [over the course of the CD] though, the band's penchant for turning every tune in a proggy wig-out, does not.
