The new Vital Weekly features reviews of the two new Startless releases.
Overall, Frans doesn't seem to like them that much, but does refer to them as "intelligent noise matter." I appreciate the sentiment. Given that he doesn't completely bash them, I think that his evaluation is based on personal taste rather than anything else. So, I will take the criticism with a grain of salt. He knows what he likes and he doesn't like it when music moves into more harsh or chaotic territory.
