    As with the first album things follow a basic title format of band name and number, giving the sense of installations in a larger process. Sometimes that results in things that steer away from re-creation to new inspiration.

    There are solid structures to these pieces, the result of audio engineers who know how to combine materials. But there’s an elegance, too, in the manner in which lines pick up from each other, rhythms are doubled or halved, textures complement each other.

    Off/On is an all-around more palatable effort would be overselling the band's sophomore release, but once the listener ventures into mid-album territory, it's easy to point out Forma's mounting melodic maturity.

    Off/On is a solid record that thrives on the idea of possibility and hedged optimism.

    Forma still have a pristine melody or two in them, but they’re not nearly as consistently pretty as they were on their debut, even though they’re largely duplicating the same mode.
