In inventing an overarching statement about modern technology, Looper has created a work that is surprisingly old-fashioned and quaint.... Though filled with pops and hisses and high-pitched squeals culled from an increasingly gadgetized world, the record remains enchantingly melodic and tuneful.
A science fiction romance dedicated to the triumphs and disappointments of the modern world, the Geometrid has all the D.I.Y beats and endearing loops of Looper's first record, Up A Tree. This time around, though, Looper take the grade-school storytelling groove of that record and retool it space-age stylee.
Although it's unlikely that Stuart David will ever become as gifted a songwriter as Stuart Murdoch, he's crafted a distinctive sound with this band. The Geometrid serves as a charming, if slight, pleasure, but with more time to devote to the project, Looper may yet create a more substantial sound.
MojoA souffle-light concoction of tape loops, odd samples, and fey vocals. [July 2000, p.118]
