"The brooding, fuzzy glitch-jazz of opener Window Seat sets the mood for the nine tracks that follow, one that is in turns soothing and deeply unsettling. Ruins sounds like a progressive version of The XX, further confirming Portico's assimilation of electronic influences...Rubidium is an eight-minutes and more mini-epic that builds from its seductive Afrobeat-cum-horn intro into a scuttling, euphoric noise. Equally uplifting is the hypnotic, beat-filled Lacker Boo and the rich, evocative City of Glass. Steepless...offers a moment of genuine pop accessibility on an album that is otherwise an exercise in sheer musical abandonment. Listen without prejudice." (Mojo 4 Stars)
