    This is a highly underated album. I saw them live and was blown away. They are like a perfect blend of Radiohead, Beach House, and Sigur Ros, drawing the best from each. For the last few months this has been my favorite album of 2012. I keep trying to find any better and it hasn't happened. If you like truly moving, epic, beautifully crafted music, check this out. It doesn't grow old. The only contenders at the moment are Lost and the Trees and Lower Dens. Which are insanely good as well. Buy this is you like music that moves you and you will be pleasantly surprised. Expand

    Ultimately though, these are minor gripes for what is an otherwise solid debut from a band which looks poised to make waves in the independent music scene for years to come.

    Passage surges, subsides and enthralls like a Gothic Sigur Ros. [Jun 2012, p.93]

    From open to close, Passages is cinematic and atmospheric, but not without a sense of forward motion. [Jun 2012, p.153]
