"Power-pop perfection... Pick a song at random and you'd be guaranteed to come away listening to one of the catchiest tunes you're ever likely to hear"
-THE GUARDIAN U.K.
"One of the most innovative bands, both live and on record... (Shimmering Lights is) stonking and immediately-pleasing"
-ALMOST GOLD RECORDINGS
"Off-kilter pop songs with a newfound sonic grittiness that recalls old Flaming Lips... a fantastic record"
"Continues the band's remarkable evolution... epic pop"
"Hot, sticky and awesome"
"Glossy and greasy at its best"
"Jittering and tightly-packed"
"Smart, crisp, and extremely hooky"
