    Coldplay-style ascendance is entirely within reach. [May 2012, p.92]

    Ways To Forget is a bar-raiser--an album of intelligent synth-pop bubbling with humanity.

    Clock Opera have delivered a debut which, just about, delivers.

    The album captures little of the Opera's live spirit.

    If the themes ate familiar then at least Clock Opera imbue them with a twisty, nervous heroism instead of indie's usual fatalist whingeing. [May 2012, p.94]

    Amidst the overstuffed yet predictable arrangements, the middle-of-the-road sentimentalism and lack of killer tunes, these brief moments can't prevent Ways To Forget itself proving to be largely forgettable.

    Things limp from bad to tedious with 'White Noise', a song so passé it just bought its first shares in ITV Digital.
