“The best I Break Horses album so far, which fulfils their Beach House-go-Kraftwerk promise, in metronomic, reverie-inducing songs… Hypnotic stuff.” Q – 4 stars ****

 

“The music is statelier than ever: a hypnotic, electronic take on shoegazing framing Linden’s bleached-out voice with a pulsating keyboard wash and twinkling arpeggios. A mood piece seemingly reflecting on heartbreak, the album is crowned by the extraordinary, seven-minutes-plus ‘Death Engine’, where Linden’s emotions are at their rawest.” MOJO – 4 stars ****

 

“Lushly layered art-pop songs such as ‘I’ll Be The Death Of You’, which channels Kraftwerk with its relentless beats and synth arpeggios, and the epic ‘Death Engine’ on which Linden’s ethereal vocals encapsulate shoegaze at it’s dreamiest best.” Uncut – 7/10

 

“Lush and cinematic… Linden builds huge walls of sound, one minute Bach-like, the next evoking Kraftwerk, as her beautiful singing voice, midway between Dusty Springfield and Bat For Lashes, delivers lyrics of real anger and bite.” Sunday Times

 

Warnings majors in the sort of gently woozy homemade synthscapes that defined its predecessor, most effective on I’ll Be The Death Of You and the nimble, propulsive, Kraftwerk-influenced Neon Lights.” The Observer

 

“Lindén wrote the first pieces of the record as a sonic experiment while watching her favourite movies on mute. It’s an exciting idea for an album, a multi-dimensional experience that listeners pick up on instinctually… The crowning jewel is ‘Baby You Have Travelled For Miles Without Love In Your Eyes’, a standout track that transcends genre.” Loud & Quiet – 7/10
