Somewhere between melancholic post-rock and rousing rock, Mary X. composes explosive ballads that alternate desperate and edgy passages, using effects successfully here and there. Vocal parts would had probably deserved to be more asserted on some tracks, to be focused on the energy instead of the melodies, but anyhow, the album is fine and the music sharply written. Intimate, tense, and deranged. Coming in a beautiful blue velvet sleeve, 500 numbered copies of Tedious Time were released.
