    In Perfect View, Lust For Youth have immersed fuzzed-up ’80s synthpop in an unnerving ambience, infused the whole thing with shades of house and come up with an album that’s a challenge, but a completely mesmerising one.

    Outlines are blurred between post-punk, rave and a very modern psychedelia; brushing between textures and emotions with skillful subtlety and provoking sincere disappointment.

    He’s made an engrossing, highly original album with disarmingly simple tools.
  4. 70
    It’s bleak music conjured from machine rather than man, but Norvidde succeeds just as wholeheartedly as his friends and countrymen as conjuring the bitter darkness that’s coming to define the region.

    His is the ambient music of someone else's party, happening far away from where you are, and the distance is part of the allure.

    Although it’s a dark, drifting ride, Perfect View makes other recent minimal synth albums (Chromatics’ Kill For Love was so flat I haven’t heard it since last September, and I still feel bored) look positively one-dimensional in comparison, and does it in a third of the time.

    Although the layers of sounds within each song are well arranged, the sounds themselves aren’t very original and each song generally sounds similar to the last.
