    Ultimately, Yuck is more pop balladry that successfully distances itself from the seemingly defunct Aussie synth-pop movement, and that serves them well.

    An overall sense of exclusivity permeates their blithe, sassy melodies, not to mention that its “adorableness” can occasionally irritate (cussing with fey charm is just so earnestly dopey). Still, Alpine’s transformation into a breezier, more cosmopolitan ensemble suits them.

    Yuck, however, sadly comes off after several listens as a little flat, the low points seeming all the more so for resting, as they do, in the shadows of the occasional peaks.

    The band's second album features a few middling faux-Europop numbers, but the best are real growers. [Jul 2015, p.71]

    Yuck may be bereft of any edges, but it's devilishly clever sophisti-pop disguised as big- box shopping center background music.
