  1. This music is the electronic, Warp-inspired answer to Brian Wilson's 'Smile.' [31 Jul 2004, p.41]
  2. An astoundingly accomplished collection of flawlessly interesting and compulsively beautiful songs. [#8, p.109]
  3. 90
    An outstanding record which you'd be unwise to miss. [Aug 2004, p.91]
  4. The disc alternates between unsettling, exhilarating, and devastating in its emotional impact; it's also difficult not to get distracted by everything going on musically.

    Really pretentious and utterly forgettable, aside from 2 songs.

    some songs have promise, but most of it is damn boring.
