    Best album of the year, hands down. It's beyond brilliant. If Quentin Tarantino directed a Cirque du Soleil show, this would be the score... And Lord knows that needs to happen.

    I've never heard anything like this album before. I mean, I've heard a lot of stuff like it, but never this far out there. It's like all of the best parts from all of my favouritest albums put together.

    Dense, satisfying, and fun--this deserves to go down as one of the peaks of baroque pop in recent years.

    Queen of the Wave just makes you lay prostrate at the feet of Pepe Deluxé in the hopes that you won't mind them relentlessly hammering you with tacky quirks and leaving absolutely nothing to the imagination.

    Never in recorded history has there been an album of such audible variety, distinctive fidelity and lyrical intensity.
