    The pomp they derive from taking dour post-rock to a rave--notably here in Prisms--is satisfying. [Nov 2013, p.101]

It feels like an album, but any song can stand on its own as well. All the songs sound lush and alive. There are a lot of interesting melodies and soundscapes. Everything is in its right place. The only problem I can identify is that there is no real point to the album, it is more of the same. There are no new ideas being pursued and no thinking outside of the box. What we're left with then is an album that is very enjoyable to listen to directly, but is also perfectly viable as background music because it is generally quite unassuming. I don't see anything wrong with that. Full Review »
