    As noisy and overwrought as Reptilians is, it's also quite promising--one has to wonder what it would sound like if Starfucker performed the same operation on its own music.

    The album doesn't have that 'grab-hold-and-don't-let-go' emotional pull that would elevate it beyond sounding nice into something to treasure. It's worth your listening time though, because even though it's not always consistently a great album, it's never less than an intriguing effort.

    Excerpts from British philosopher Alan Watts punctuate the album, his dry declarations bringing the mood down at intervals. Still, if you want a positive outlook on death, the overall liveliness of Reptilians should help.

    With no standout tracks, Reptilians just becomes 40 minutes of innocuous, digital background music that's been done before.

    This debut proves equally effervescent. [Apr 2011, p.109]
