    The album is just gorgeous. Laura Bettinsons vocals are amazing and the music is beautiful. Every song is a joy to listen. Easily one of the best albums of 2012

    At its worst (most of it), it's layered synth sounds with beats and vocals smacking of a manufactured sexiness, all designed to hide the gaping void where memorable songwriting should be. [No. 93, p.59]

    The best songs on UltraĆ­sta recall the murky pop made by the likes of Broadcast, where clarity and catchiness intermingled

    Godrich's production gives the album exquisite depth but also smothers its soul. [Dec 2012, p.114]
