    The partners deftly sustain a mood of languor through a dozen tracks of varying tone and texture. [Apr 2013, p.67]

    Alternatively gentle and jangly, The House At Sea is a delight. [No. 95, p.52]

    While the best work of the Clientele created worlds, The House at Sea charmingly aspires to being a photo album, something to inspire your own travels rather than serve as a substitute for them.

    The album is loaded with atmosphere, but there are pop "hits", so to speak, here too.
  5. Jan 29, 2013
    The material here is as comfortable as breakfast on the veranda in your bathrobe. [Jan-Feb 2013, p.86]

    Ultimately, The House at Sea provides an ideal aural retreat, a tranquil locale where calm waters create minimal waves.

    There aren't a lot of bands that can pull off making something so quiet and unassuming but with as much emotional pull and drama as The House at Sea. Amor de Días do it with ease.

    One of the great pleasures of The House at Sea is that you can enjoy it without thinking about it, on a purely sensual, intuitive level, without feeling that there's nothing there to consider.
