    [The album] is so blatantly, almost self-consciously pleasurable it should come, like an insalubrious takeaway, with heavy duty napkins. [Apr 2014, p.65]

    Vezelay's sensual poetics melding into Rix-Martin and Paradinas' lush electronica on an album of retro-futuristic pop that improves with each spin and shimmers bright with widescreen radiance.

    At times Weird Drift's afternoon daze softens into formlessness.

    Despite Weird Drift's genre-busting ambitions, the album feels humble and unpretentious.

    Weird Drift is a lighter and less oppressive affair [than Love & Devotion]. [Jun 2014, p.112]

    This is a dreamier affair, lighter than air music that floats along like a wispy breeze; unfortunately, last year’s effort seems to have set a standard which has clearly proven difficult to recreate.

    It seems Paradinas' real talents lie behind the scenes.
