    Melodically great, lyrically just Ok. Limited Edition Heart and Architecture of Amnesia, probably the best songs on the album, reminded me of Electric Light Orchestra for their great instrumental.

    Whether or not it's a world that one would choose, Rhys gives it a better soundtrack than it probably deserves.

    Rhys' words may be filled with dread but his music offers solace in its deftly executed songcraft and reassuring soft focus, which means Babelsberg can soothe the very emotions it stirs up.

    For all its lavish instrumentation and weighty subtext, however, Babelsberg never overwhelms Rhys’ preternatural gift for writing swoon-worthy melodies.
