    If corralling the chaos is their new MO, they made a smart move. [Aug 2011, p.81]

    One immediately clear difference between Two Way Mirror and previous Crystal Antlers work is the fact the band, led by vocalist and bass player Jonny Bell, have improved immeasurably as musicians.

    Mirror's six-and-a-half-minute closer and a major highlight here, could moonlight as a Rolling Stones B-side from the late '70s. Fear not. Have a look.

    As a whole, the sophomore album is inconsistent, but when being eccentric is such a large part of a group's appeal, this is to be expected. Notwithstanding a few weak moments, many tracks are potentially their best.
  5. All in all, Two-Way Mirror is a good but flawed album, with plenty of things to excite, but a few things that can disappoint.
  6. 70
    All in all, a weird brew, set to confound anyone who likes their music to fit neatly in a box.

    In addition to being a strong return to form, Two-Way Mirror gives Crystal Antlers some much needed momentum after an unfortunate run of bad timing and bad luck.

    Two-Way Mirror produces a handsome cacophony as is, but cutting away some of the gunk would have made it sweeter.
