    Though adhering to this formula/non-formula, this self-produced long-time-comin' sophomore release relies on an even more augmented eclecticism than their 2004 guitar-driven Future Perfect (not better or worse, just OK Computer to The Bends differences).
  2. As it stands, Transit Transit is a beautifully executed work that would have made the band solid contenders if it had been released back in 1992.
  3. Autolux balance droney post-rock and electronics with rare skill. [Sept. 2010, p. 113]
  4. Transit Transit is full of the sort of implausible leaps of imagination that normally only happen in your sleep.
  5. Transit Transit is a very idea-focused album, with each track a structure whose foundation lies in a very specific sound.
  6. Autolux clearly saves its affection for intricacy and sonic margins, but after six years you'd think it'd sound more eager for the spotlight.
  7. 40
    Atmospheric post-grunge is the order of the day, but while the likes of "Census" is dynamically tight, the impression is of talented technicians, not great songwriters. [Sep 200, p.83]

    Just like Future Perfect but in a different and even more deconstructed way, it makes you tilt your head to the side like a confused puppy Just like Future Perfect but in a different and even more deconstructed way, it makes you tilt your head to the side like a confused puppy wondering how they did it.
