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

    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.
  3. 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.

    Too often on the Antlers' second full-length, their washed-out melodies suggest powerfully memorable hooks that never fully materialize or cohere.

    Considering all the trials and tribulations, Crystal Antlers can definitely look themselves in the, um, mirror with Two-Way Mirror and feel good about where they are and where they're still headed.

    Crystal Antlers have delivered a record that, rather than making good on the promise of their early work, is simply serviceable. But there's evidence here of a band still finding their feet and defining their sound.
  7. 50
    Dripping guitars and distortion follow Crystal Antlers' predictable style, but the messy trajectory of Two-Way Mirror requires serious tolerance for walls of noise to endure from start to finish.
