  1. The first few tracks work a treat, melding glitchy beats and stomping brass bands in the best tradition of Björk or Sigur Rós. After that, however, things start to feel a bit overwrought.
  2. Efterklang could create an expansive rock album on par with the work of Arcade Fire. But they’re not interested in anything as patent as that; instead, let’s welcome this modest, complex work for its intricate charm and soft beauty.

    There's nothing so prosaic as choruses, but there's warmth to spare. [Nov 2007, p.137]

    Is it just me, or is the band name 'Efterklang' somewhat similar to 'Ester Drang'?
