    a solid first full length album from a promising young dreampop group. While not the "can't miss album" that their years ep was, its still very solid. Denise continues to grow into a very talented singer and front woman, and evan seems to have decided to focus his efforts more on guitar work rather than brooding synths. Highly recommended for any fan of dreampop or indie rock.

    While Memoryhouse might be demographically marketed to the youngsters, there's something in the retro-alternative beauty of The Slideshow Effect that aging Gen-Xers raised on the golden age of college radio might appreciate a little more.

    Pale and pensive indie-pop, cooled to a chill, with [lead singer] Nouvion floating over a similarly tranquil, dreamy wash, like an American Sundays. [Apr 2012, p. 90]

    Very clearly the work of art-school kids who use their skills for creating alluring visuals to craft equally enticing music. [No. 85, p.56]
