All Music Guide - Tim Sendra
Within and Without is Washed Out's debut album for Sub Pop and the first chance a wide audience will have to hear Ernest Greene's brand of dreamy, drowsy synth pop. Washed Out's early singles and EPs had a slightly ramshackle sound built on cheap-sounding synths and Greene's pleading (and buried-in-reverb) vocals; this LP has a much more shimmery and sleek sound with banks of fresh synthesizers and drum machines that sound like they were borrowed from an early-'90s electronic group (like Ultramarine, for example).

Within and Without will satisfy your needs in that regard, and only those looking for memorable songs or fresh sounds will feel let down.
