    Waiting For Something To Happen, is something both sinister and sweet, dripping with shoegaze guitars and harmonies abound.

    Originality isn’t always the most important criterion in music like this. Familiar, nostalgic sounds can please just as much, as they do here.

    Largely, the band’s turn from paradoxically sweet Goth-pop to the more treaded territory jangle-pop works against them.

    Aside from a few bright spots, such as the long-gestating single “Teenage”, nothing on Waiting for Something to Happen really sticks on repeated listens.

    Adding the pluses and minuses, it's clear that Waiting for Something to Happen isn't a failure by any stretch, but it is something of a disappointment.
  6. What they offer on Waiting For Something To Happen is a fey-pop selection box that leaves out the gothic grit and garage-infused rabble of early tracks.

    There are rewards to be had for perseverance but, just like before, we’re left wishing they’d loosen up a bit.
  8. It's nothing that Best Coast and the Magic Numbers don't do better.

    Neither offensive nor inventive this album is a bit like a bag of Rainbow Drops; thrillingly pretty but ultimately full of air.
