    If Widowspeak keep refining their sound and cranking out memorable and quietly impressive songs like they do here, they may end up being pretty special. Even if they don't, though, this album will still be out there to help soothe and thrill you when you have a post-Mazzy itch you need to scratch.

    There are thus a number of quite diverse stylistic influences at work, but here they are all fused together into a whole that is both natural and low-key.

    Their excellent debut album is a neat mix of somnambulant balladry and ragged high drama. [Oct 2011, p.105]

    Its winning, all-pleasing debut, quiet as it may be in a scene overcrowded with showiness and incessant bids to polarize, is perhaps a mere pebble dropped in a sea-but with will and wit enough to ripple as far as a boulder.

    It's a promising brand of ethereal indie rock for a band just beginning.

    Widowspeak are a perfectly enjoyable, if ultimately unexciting band.

    Beachy summer party/winter bummer wallpaper for your Bohemian café-bar and for the hipsters that frequent it, who like their pop music perfectly pleasant and non-threatening.
