AllMusic Review by

In One's second EP release deals in a somewhat typical vein of dreamy, spacy, washed-out indie (with inspiration drawn from groups like Chapterhouse) that works surprisingly well for the band, even as late in the game as 1996. The key seems to be a decent amount of track variety -- "Mercury" establishes the hazy, post-shoegazing dreampop that seems to be the band's center, but tracks like "The Ceiling Reappears" and "Nastasya" open up into spacious, minimal mixes of heavily reverbed vocals and guitars, and both turn out rather lovely. When the band lays wispy trails of seriously affected guitars over the mix, they conjure some of the same prettiness of Tel Aviv's better work.
