    A debut so exquisitely tooled I cannot find a thing wrong with it.

    The only problem with this little gem of an album is that there isn't more of it.

    On NZCA/Lines, he achieves his goal [to make 2012 sexy], slipping from slick pop that transforms the mundane into sheer seductiveness ('Okinawa Channels'), to monastic barbershop harmonies ('AM Travel Approach').

    At times brilliantly cold and clinical, it feels like an album created for a man-made future but with Lovett's soulful croon adding the humanity, you'll feel every heartbeat.

    There is something beautifully moving and enchanting about NZCA/LINES' music, and his debut album is a wonderfully assured and measured collection of forward thinking electronic pop.

    This is an album that glides between the concertedly cold and clinical, and a simplistic joy in pop harmonies.

    "Moonlit Car Chase" and "Base 64 Love" come perilously close to generic technopop.

    The instrumentals can feel sketchy, but the vocal tracks shine. [Mar 2012, p.106]

    It's a pleasingly understated album, never too busy.
