We said: "The album’s greatest moment arrives via Phase 90, which promptly establishes itself as the greatest song ever made about, well, losing your place in a novel. ‘Tried to finish a book I was reading, I put it down for too long,’ sings Walter Schreifels over swirling guitars. ‘I got distracted by other things, other dreams, forgot the characters and their names.’ In the hands of a less gifted singer, these words would sound almost trivial. Instead, his concussed delivery freights them with meaning – it doesn’t make you think about all the books you’ve not finished, it leads you to contemplate all the ways life tends to swallow up your time and best intentions. It’s the kind of song that reminds you why Quicksand remain your favourite band’s favourite band."
