While Love Spirals Downwards' sound has evolved from their debut, their first effort still features some of their best tunes. The overall sound of the album is heavenly and reverberant, and there's also a greater degree of layering than subsequent works, with highly processed acoustic and electric guitars coalescing gracefully around Suzanne Perry's angelic vox, Ryan Lum's heavenly keyboards, and occasional hand percussion and rhythm programming. Idylls also includes some beautiful cover artwork.
