  • Summary: This is actually the second LP from Richard Warren (aka Echoboy), who picks up frequent comparisons to the similarly eclectic Beta Band and Badly Drawn Boy.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 3 out of 4
  2. Negative: 0 out of 4
  1. This is a record in which Warren has fused elements of dance, rock, trance and folk to create exquisite pieces of crystalline future-leaning pop.
  2. Echoboy slakes our thirst for accessible but quirky pop.
  3. 70
    Echoboy nonchalantly pits twittering electronica and filmic ambiences against garage guitar riffing and sugary Europop: the result is an unpredictable 45-minute journey in sound. And it's an alluring trip for the most part.
  4. By turns soothing and jarring, the tone suggests Death In Vegas with the neurosis replaced by a mood of ennui.
