  1. It's far from a poor record - the sole problem is that a number of songs do blur together, forming more of an aural whitewash than the technicolour trip some had predicted.
  2. Q Magazine
    Should go down well with listeners who like their singers to take break-ups badly. [Nov 2005, p.125]
  3. Past Presents the Future falters between a coalesced pop sound and its pristine fragments.
  4. Bianchi doesn’t seem to be traveling down any new paths.
  5. Bianchi's not much for such subtleties, emotional or rhetorical, which may suggest he'll have as much lovelorn electro-symphonic melodrama to recount on future albums as on those past and present.
  6. Alternative Press
    Bianchi's hackneyed lyrics... often overshadow the music's subtle pleasures. [Oct 2005, p.170]
  7. Under The Radar
    This feels like a record that should move the listener, yet its complete lack of conviction makes this almost impossible. [#11, p.115]
  8. Mojo
    The songs are so wordy, the album so one-paced that it soon begins to sag. [Dec 2005, p.105]

    Same great Her Space Holiday sounds we've come to know and love, but this time he takes it to a new level.
