All Music Guide - Heather Phares
Based on the Hundred in the Hands' debut EP for Warp, This Desert, the band could have gone in two different directions for its first full-length. The duo could have gone deeper into the experimental leanings shown on some songs, or the sleek disco-pop displayed on others. For their self-titled debut, they chose the latter; Jason Friedman and Eleanore Everdell worked with pop mega-producer Richard X, among others, which explains the album's sleeker, slicker feel, while louder guitars, the occasional live drums, and more aggressive synths add a sharper edge.
