    Thailand and telephone love letters might not have been how you spent your summer, but Janssen finds a way to make it all seem relatable.

    The overall accumulation of the album's atmosphere might be its greatest success.

    While it's not exactly beach music, his ear for uplifting harmonies as on So Lucky's lens-flared sonic rapture and Hand Over Hand's ecstatic evocation of bucolic landscapes, means the songs never fail to glow. [Aug 2012, p.95]

    It's a summer record, in the classic sense, constructed from vibrant, laissez-faire love songs. [Jun 2012, p.152]

    Buoy never seems to fully achieve what makes his music with Akron/Family so enthralling.
