The Line of Best Fit
What makes this album stand out from other synth pop albums is how they can switch from being overtly synthetic.

Maximum Entropy is the somewhat frustrating work of a band with potential in need of some fine tuning.

Under The Radar

It's listenable and pleasant, and has promising snatches of creativity, but mostly it's unremarkable.

Drowned in Sound
In truth, it feels rather lightweight, as do much of Ryan James and Tomas Greenhalf's more adventurous flourishes, seldom though they are. As the narrative unfolds, nothing arrives at the punch of promising earlier efforts.
It’s impossible to ignore the actual music, it’s so damn loud! And so stuffed up by the production, which is all there is. The end result is songs that that are so bright you might imagine you’re about to be blinded.
