    Nostalchic’= is the record you want to be listening to during the afterglow of good sex or a perfect ecstasy trip.

    Whilst Nostalchic is Lapalux’s most full-bodied work to date, it’s also one of the finer examples of how the recent house-meets-r’n'b explosion can be executed with subtlety and finesse.

    Lapalux is already in the foothills of greatness. [May 2013, p.73]
  4. There are a couple of lesser tracks on Nostalchic and it’s up for debate as to how well Howard sticks the landing on the LP format, but Lapalux is a singular talent and his debut is evidence of that even if the pieces don’t all quite click neatly into place.

    Nostalgic is an exciting journey, but during the moments when Lapalux fails to provide a coherent roadmap, it's a bit too easy for the rest of us to get lost.

    Keeping solidly in line with the Brainfeeder tradition, Nostalchic is a forward-looking album, warm and comfortable but never obvious.

    Prone to playing one too many familiar games--the compressed vocals and the clunky convergence of beats ducking down--though as the sole Brit on Brainfeeder, you can’t knock him for being a team player.
