    This is a great record. Talk Normal are clearly indebted to the foundations of post-punk and no wave, but crucially they never feel like a throwback.

    Their second full length album, Sunshine--which had its US release back in October--wonderfully demonstrates the finesse necessary to play noise rock.

    Dreamy and cacophonous. [Feb 2013, p.98]
  4. 70
    On their sophomore LP, Sunshine, they keep to their twitchy aesthetic-hopping.

    The music is complex, but not in a Phillip Glass orchestral kind of way.

    Talk Normal invoke the bare and abstract, not the fully rendered or figured, and it feels like they are making not only the kind of music we never thought we'd be missing out on, but also the kind that would be hard to live without.

    Talk Normal have made an album that's by turns thrilling, frustrating and annoying, often within the same song. [Feb 2013, p.111]
