    An epic ambition that bolster Nona Marie Levine's lightly burnished vocals. [Nov 2012, p.96]

    Ultimately, the band sticks to their proven strength and delivers one of the most restrained and delicate songs on the record, providing a compelling ending to an utterly worthwhile journey.

    If Dark Dark Dark are one of many acts who seem to define the realm of vaguely quirky and slightly winsome indie rock of the 21st century, the lean of the performances tends toward the quietly contemplative above all else, however much in a band context.

    Art-pop triumph "Tell Me" puts it all over the top as the zenith of Triple D's young career. That's something to be optimistic about.

    Unusual musical flairs pop up all over Who Needs Who... [but] the style never becomes the substance. Likewise, the drama behind the album's making doesn't overwhelm the music.

    This forgiving, tender album still offers a welcome, optimistic twist on the normally bitter genre of break-up albums.

    A couple of tracks at once would probably be the best prescription to suggest, rather than ingesting as a whole.
