    It's definitely a subtle magic TOPS weave here, and like all the best records, Tender Opposites rewards repeated spins.

    Tender Opposites is undoubtedly a solid, cohesive and enjoyable first album from the Montreal band.

    Queasy melodies, light-headed keys and emaciated Smiths guitar flourishes slowly generate a dank unease. [Nov 2012, p.95]

    For the most part, it works. [Nov 2012, p.108]
  5. Tender Opposites is a technical delight, sounding like psych-nitwits Deerhoof giving an old friend a bearhug.

    Taking cues from disco and synth-pop, TOPS are better suited to drifting and daydreaming than dancing.
