    Radiant Door may not be an essential purchase, but it's both a nice reminder of why Crystal Stilts are so good and a nice placeholder for their next album.

    Radiant Door is exactly as its title suggests--the brighter side of one of America's best psych-pop bands.

    The five songs that Radiant Door is comprised of shows the band's pensive, if occasionally exploratory side.

    Their music is an exercise in reductionism: how little does a tune need to be tune? Yet, somehow these non-tunes niggle away till they lodge firmly in the memory tissue. [Jan. 2012, p.66]
  5. That two of the five songs are covers isn't a bad thing, but it does give the impression that this record's a bit of a throwaway: there are some interesting directions pointed out by the denser arrangements, but we'll have to wait to see how they'll realise them more fully.
