    Exciting and moving, the songs on True Love Kills the Fairy Tale would work just as well stripped-down and spare as they do in the intricately produced electro-pop forms presented here.

    True Love Kills the Fairy Tale flourishes in the complex tension between the Greenes' mellifluous vocal harmonies, their jarring, amorphous lyrics, and the haunted-house dream pop in which both are encased.

    This is an exceptionally strong collection that underlines this project's unique voice and establishes it as more than just a tantalizing tentacle of Black Moth Super rainbow. [Feb/Mar 2014, p.70]

    You can give True Love Kills the Fairy Tale several spins and still not remember which lilting melody goes with which crashing, reverby drum-fuzz-and-synth lick.

    The key to the album is contradiction, between the vocals and instrumentation, between the lack of expression and the outpouring of emotion. These contradictions make True Love Kills the Fairy Tale a chemical concoction that listeners, like The Casket Girls, will want to get strung out on.

    The formula--and the tempo--never really varies, although some of the musical settings are craggier than others.
