PopMatters

They’ve made a bigger, denser, more accessible record but in so doing, have not lost sight of their strengths—rather, those strengths now shine through even more clearly.

Drowned in Sound

It’s pretty good, but as with any punks gone pro, Crystal Castles have lost something – attitude, fire, aggression, danger; the usual stuff.

They've succeeded in making a bigger album than the debut, but I feel that some of the magic is gone. It's not nearly as consistent or as playful to me. Still, they had something really great going for them with the darker, gothic style.

Favourite tracks: Baptism, Vietnam, Not in Love

(II) suena a una especie de música sacada de las tinieblas de un cuento de princesas, un material muy femenino, muy hermoso, y muy siniestro. Y de verdad me gustan esas paredes de sonido que implementaron como algo nuevo en su sonido.
