9/10 Nick Stone Customer review, 4th July 2015
Between the lovely analogue warmth, and stunning packaging, its a mystery why this record didn't get a vinyl release sooner. I'm not always sure what Donald Drusky is singing about, but I do know his soaring tenor often brings me near tears. The melodies and textures are so intricate, no wonder they are still working on a follow up. There is a superficial resemblance to late-period Flaming Lips, but this is simultaneously more oblique and more heartfelt than what Wayne Coyne has done since Ronald Jones left the group. One suspects that this might be the precursor the the arrival of the long-awaited second album.
