    It's always quite difficult to say why a band doing music which is particularly derivative of some other band's music succeeds in doing what they do. In that case, there is no arguing that No Joy is channelling the likes of Slowdive and My Bloody Valentine. Yet, everything on this album is exceedingly well crafted from the roaring starting track E to the dreamier Blue Neck Riviera. All in all, in spite of its lack of originality, it's a very satisfying album. Expand

    This power trio makes no attempt whatsoever to hide their stylistic sonic cathedral. [Jan 2014, p.76]

    Anthemic stuff abounds here but they really hit a powerful stride in the middle with the fast-paced “Lizard Kids,” the funky bottom of “Lunar Phobia” and the girl-group sweetness of “Wrack Attack.”

    Textured as it comes, the album drips with heady shoegaze, and meaty bass lines prevail in a melodic, rewarding sonic endeavor.
