    Organ Music feels too much like a mere exercise by the end of its thirty-seven minutes-a melancholic, dark, interesting experiment, but one without conclusive results.

    It's effective, but the lyrics and the slightly mannered vocals never really rise above the level of jokey pastiche. [Sep 2011, p.91]

    Depending on one's view, it could be heard as trance music for indie folks or prog music for electro pop fans.

    What Krug describes as "something between pop and lush drones" are sub-zero tunes with unexpected bursts of warmth. They're not for everybody, and have an unfinished, sketchy feel, but it's hard to deny their strange beauty.

    The truths on Organ Music are captivating enough; it's just too bad there aren't more of them.

    Though his lyrics still reveal the same somewhat troubled, fascinated, inquisitive, frustrated, self-aware, and bewildered soul as always, the music itself is pretty bare bones.

    His strengths are all being restrained, but you can tell they're struggling to get free.

    Organ Music may not quite be what Krug hoped for--and it's by no means perfect--but it is intriguing and occasionally illuminating.

    Krug is a songwriter whose craft is best when met with the editing of other musicians--left to himself, however, we are left with a very forgettable retreat into his very OMD-obsessed psyche.
