  1. Ternion is a greatly entertaining album with plenty of replay value, especially in those stand out tracks.

    What's remarkable is how well it all works--no glitches, no hiccups, just 10 tracks of mind-broadening quirk.

    Taken as a whole, Ternion is a strong step forward for the band, one that takes them to the front of the line of bands looking to re-create the sounds, and more importantly, the feel of classic synth pop.

    They try full blown techno, then revert to indie dance type, suggesting they are still too esoteric to cross over, but, even so, this record widen their appeal. [Feb 2012, p.111]

    While Ternion doesn't have the class, flair or essential brilliance of The English Riveria, it often shows the same gift for understatement and ability to embrace the spaces in between the sounds.

    They promised a great leap forward, and this isn't it.

    Occasionally there are garish synths nauseating enough to induce a hangover on their own, and it's only then that WHB remind you why nu-rave is a genre best forgotten.
