    If some of these drifting, piano-rich tunes aren't reworked into dream-state Ibiza sunset bangers by next summer then, frankly, the world is dancing to the wrong beat. [Mar 2013, p.98]

    They are truly captivating when they take the best of their talents and translate them as they feel and, frankly, it matters little whether the product bears sonic points of reference to others or not.
  3. It’s mid-album epic ‘Push It’ that best showcases their dexterity, an eerie bass-drum kick blending with a beautiful crescendo of soaring violin strings and piano keys.

    What Duologue should be most proud of in Song & Dance is the variety and the consistently high quality.

It is full of a wide range of sounds, so that the album feels alive, and yet none of the tracks really jar to collide with each other.

Despite this, it doesn't feel like some Radiohead tribute, since the tracks are so innovative and fresh sounding, rather than attempting to mimic the efforts of already successful bands. Full Review »
