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.

(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.

A solid followup to their debut. I really love the darker songs on this album such as Baptism and Vietnam. Overall, this album is darker than their debut and still features some fantastic instrumentals as well as vocals.

Favourite tracks: Celestica, Doe Deer, Baptism, Year Of Silence, Suffocation, Violent Dreams, Vietnam, Pap Smear, Not In Love, I Am Made of Chalk
