  1. The second Yelle album is essential for anyone who appreciates dancefloor-friendly European synth pop.

    As it is, Yelle will have to settle for having made a merely awesome album instead of double awesome one, which is still pretty awesome when you get right down to it.
  3. The group who has created a sense of hype surrounding their sound did not deliver in comparison to past material that was praised so fondly for their vintage synth-pop sound.

    Yet due to the combination of the singer's delicate voice and the insistent distance these songs puts across, itself partially a consequence of the language barrier, Budet never seems to develop a definite personality.

    Julie Budet chirps exclusively in French, which helps her Auto-Tuned singsong remain vaguely mysterious, even if her childlike melodies are far simpler than the subtly finessed synths.
