    The pair have come up with a finely crafted album that blurs the line between shoegaze, indie pop and goth-rock, and is as assured as it is atmospheric. [Dec 2014, p.69]

    As accessible and dour as it is on the surface, it’s the subtleties that continually beckon you in for more and leave their mark upon your subconscious.

    At times its Cure guitars, thudding drums and eerie vocals get lost amid the fog (‘In The Mirror’, ‘South’). But when it finds a solid rock stomp, as on ‘Crest’ or ‘Raptor’, 2:54 loom like a monster in the mist.
  4. 70
    The Other I is a confident collection of tunes decent enough to warrant keeping an eye on 2:54's future movements.

    This needling sense of disturbance is impressive, but it's still a relief when they break the mood more dramatically on the choral interlude Tender Shoots or the swamp-dark swing of The Monaco, reassuring signs they haven't yet become too set in their monochrome ways. [Dec 2014, p.106]

    It's dreamy stuff, but it's nothing on their 5K-rated, self-titled 2012 debut album. [15 Nov 2014, p.54]

    2:54 have built a palatial structure on The Other I, but they still have yet to lay out a welcome mat.
