    Some may scoff at the limited musical palette on tracks such as the La's-like Lazy Love, but beneath the bluff exterior beats the heart of a great pop band. [Jun 2018, p.109]

    On first listen, it’s hard to ignore a sense of inconsistency and feeling that something’s lacking from its second half. That said, come the second time listening you start to stop questioning the diversity and simply celebrate the fact they’ve got the repertoire, and guts, to mix everything up and make it work.

    While this second LP broadens their scope to take in baggy, shoegaze, jangle pop and even some ill-advised bits that sound like Travis.

    There is plenty of crooning and emoting from O'Dell and there are some hummable, even memorable tunes. At times, though, For Now is remarkably dull, serving as the relatively indifferent placeholder its title might imply.

    As was the case with Hills End, the sonic and architectural puppetry is meticulous and heartfelt, but the absence of any sort of innovation induces a sort of pleasant fatigue that grows decidedly less agreeable with repeated spins.
