I don't know what to think of this album. It sounds fun while I'm listening to it but I can't recall any special moment afterwards.

I'm exactly the opposite. I keep going back to my favorites (Genesis, Oblivion, Vowels = Space and Time) more than I do with any other album this year.

A complaint from one of the only negative-ish reviews for this album:

listlessly long (48 minutes!)

Boucher is a better singer than Robyn, I just don't care for her pitch most of the time. Way too high.

She sorta reminds me of Cocteau Twins sometimes (Grimes singer).

Yeah, I'm thinking I might just grow to be charmed by her voice the way I am Elizabeth Fraser's.

I feel like I've already heard Grimes be compared to Cocteau Twins, but I don't hear it. This is closer to microhouse, but with dreamy synths and an overall slower tempo.

Yeah, her basic singing doesn't really sound anything like Cocteau Twins, but some of her little vocal intros and such remind me of them I guess. Something like that.

I think I like about half this album, but it's only been one listen, so that may change.
