    They are less successful when they step beyond these templates--the trippy "Surface" doesn't quite come off-- but this is a strong set. [Oct 2011, p.95]

    Pleasure's same-ness is much the point, but that doesn't prevent it from being the one thing that holds the group back.

    Pleasure drifts in and out of focus--some of the 10 tracks aren't even complete songs, just a hook that fades in and fades out again, having stumbled along pleasantly for a couple of minutes, with Nate Grace's guitar cutting through the amniotic fug.

    For the most part, Pleasure delivers less on the promise of its title with every rehash of the same, endlessly whirring formula.

    The back half of the record in particular is a slog to get through. [Jul 2011, p.97]
