Spin (p.76) - "'Snookered' is the centerpiece -- kidlike keyboard plinks and the ambient hum of looped voices swell to a shaggy indie-rock lope....Even at his most contemplative and nuanced, Deacon remains a DIY trickster at heart."Alternative Press (p.142) - 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "Glitchy synthesizers meet meditative chants, hyperactive arpeggiators meet droning vocals, challenging song structures are filled with huge cadences and addictive melodies that warrant repeat listens."Mojo (Publisher) (p.106) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "BROMST takes it to the next level. Dense, but not impenetrable....This time around the wackiness is reined in and limited to titles such as 'Baltihorse' and 'Surprise Stefani.' Cheeky, but delightful."Blender (Magazine) (p.60) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "The Baltimore electronic composer's beats are manic, exuberant and overstuffed with '80s synth-pop squiggles."Clash (magazine) (p.113) - "It's the sound of absolute calculated madness from Dan's cheap Casio rhythms to the pitched-up-beyond-all-recognition vocal effects."0.1748756
