  • Summary: A member of Ladytron's touring band as well as the trio Super Numeri, English multi-instrumentalist Jonathan Pop Levi (yes, Pop is indeed his middle name) makes his full-length solo debut with this eclectic disc.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 15 out of 17
  2. Negative: 0 out of 17
  1. You will be hearing more about Pop Levi. For now I’d recommend you simply hear more of Pop Levi—this shit is fantastic.
  2. Nobody is putting out music like Pop Levi's right now.
  3. Certainly Levi's mannered vocal style, with its brittle helium edge, requires a bit of commitment from the listener. Immerse yourself in Black Magick Party's world, though, and you will become hopelessly attached.
  4. The album’s dark title belies its artful balancing of psych pop’s sweetness with head-down, rock riffing and the emotional power of the blues.
  5. There's barely a dull moment on this album.
  6. He should recognise that his overlong songs could use a trim, but there is depth beyond the Willy Wonka weirdness.
