  1. And though the album is full of promising leads and sharp-witted initiative, it's hard to shake the feeling that this album is a collection of unfinished ideas, presented with no pretensions to the contrary.
  2. The changes are so minute and the record so unassuming and melody free that it is really hard to care about the band anymore.
  3. Promise never runs out of steam or succumbs to laziness, but it's never as engaging as it should be, either.
  4. End[s] up sounding timid and a little tedious.

    Subtle, shimmering, and breathtakingly gorgeuos chillout reflection music.

The songs are just perfect. Andrew Kenney's vocals are angel-like and the rhythm is tighter than ever. I highly recommend this. Full Review »
