AllMusic
They've found a way to be quiet, moving, and aggressive simultaneously, mixing trance-like beauty with the deepest delayed guitar sounds around, a sound at once relaxing, soothing, and exciting, and most of all harshly beautiful.

As a whole, Souvlaki is marvelously composed work of shoegaze, dreamily spacey, blissfully droning, and makes a very strong case for being the second most essential Shoegaze album.

NR

"If Loveless is the noisy side of the coin, Souvlaki is the dreamy side. Yes it is a beautiful coin."

This is a certified hood classic. Every track on here is expertly crafted and the soundscapes on here are unlike anything I have ever heard. Souvlaki Space Station is one of the most beautiful tracks of all time, this record is master class.

best tracks: Alison, Machine Gun, Souvlaki Space Station & When the Sun Hits.
