Record Review: Cryptacize

[2009, Asthmatic Kitty]

Full review HERE. Nedelle Torrisi has some lovely vocal melodies on this album, and when the group is at their best, they write really great pop songs ("Tail and Mane", "Blue Tears", "Mythomania", "The Cage"). However, there are some very underdeveloped ideas, resulting in an uneven album. I had trouble choosing a rating... initially I gave this a 3.5, but the great songs don't quite compensate for the weaker ones. I highly recommend at least checking out the noted tracks.

Listen (whole album stream!)
