  1. Although still fans of start-stop measures and tempo changes, this time around songs are given some welcome room to breathe and the quartet focus on grand, pastoral soundscapes, which loosely recall the likes of Pink Floyd.
  2. 60
    Sad-eyed generalists with a knack for cinematic spookiness, they aspire to Wolf Parade's adventurousness, but often descend into lumbering, Interpol-style self-seriousness.
  3. 56
    The result is a seamless yet stark poeticism that best represents MSHVB's overcast outlook on the world below.
  4. It's got a lot of good musical ideas, but very few of those ideas seem to come to fruition.
  5. Under The Radar
    Only "Hurrah" has moments reminiscent of the first record, but if the band seems this bored for the better part of 40 minutes, it's hard not to expect a listener to feel the same way. [Summer 2010, p.79]
