    This is not a noise release, to say the least. Mostly, the album imitates the Cocteau Twins, adding occasional touches of shoegazer distortion to pop songs that are sometimes melancholy, sometimes playful, but generally downbeat. The songs themselves help elevate the record; there are plenty of melodic hooks and details, and some of these tunes will stick in your head. The album's greatest weakness is in the thin, flat, breathy vocals, which occasionally ruin an otherwise pleasant, if derivative, listening experience.

    Edit: to anyone wondering, this album's style description originally included "noise." It's been subsequently and accurately removed.
