    The record is an amazing first stride for Amateur Best, one that’s both full of pop sensibilities and avant-garde experimenting.

    Stick with this 10-tracker, please, as while its first number isn’t the most arresting of curtain-ups, what comes afterwards is entirely captivating.

    It's boldly rendered, and somehow crafts a very human world from cartoon sonics.

    The cover boasts No Thrills, but listen to the music inside and you'll know nothing can be further from the truth.
  5. 60
    Too often, however, Flory is prone to overcomplicating matters, and tracks like ‘In Time’ and ‘Get Down’ wind up too governed by the soulless stamp of the laptop.

    Carefully constructed with plenty of inventive, multi-layered vocals, it works best on the livelier songs. [Apr 2013, p.93]
