Had they chosen to change their name to Pyramiddd, they could have been filed right next to the similar-sounding Passion Pit, Pinback, or Postal Service.

Parted out, the tunes are still glossy and uber-catchy enough to make them viable commercial jingles, but as a whole, Reptilians is way more concrete than earlier Starfucker records. There aren't any weak points, and it drifts along dreamily, from one understated jam to the next.
