    The boy is on a roll of releases with Parallax being the absolute peak. Cox really has come into his own by letting his vocals take front seat on this record, as opposed to the ethereal dreamscapes of Logos.

    Great album, I love Deerhunter and when I saw Bradford Cox had released a new album with his side project Atlas Sound I got very interested in hearing it.

    Parallax not only allows you into the deep, emotional croon of Bradford Cox's latest ambition; no, it also allows you to feel, taste, imagine. His dreamy soundscapes, catchy acoustic **** and punchy choruses captivate you and don't let go. Cox only gets better with age. This album is much more guitar oriented than Logos, and that is a good thing. Logos is great, Parallax is amazing.

    It's a record best consumed in a semi-recumbent position, in order to match the loping, laidback pace of the music and Cox's stoned, oak-aged vocals. [Dec. 2011 p. 99]

    Some tracks are more outre than others... but throughout his sustained, idiosyncratic vision is absorbing. [Dec. 2001 p. 123]

    Dreamy, classic-sounding pop nuggets, sung by Cox with a wry, casual authority. [Jan 2011, p.79]
