AllMusic Review by

Matt Weiner (formerly of Featureless Ghost) has used the name TWINS for his distorted techno and lo-fi house tracks as well as his minimal wave and synth pop tunes. That Which Is Not Said, his first release on Mike Simonetti and Mike Sniper's 2MR Records, is one of his more focused, song-driven efforts, but it's still very much an album for clubs. Opener "Glass Breaks Glass" is a faster, more paranoid electro-punk blitz not dissimilar to ADULT., but the rest of the album is made up of steady, surging darkwave dance tracks with vocals somewhere in between Depeche Mode's Dave Gahan and Coil's John Balance. Weiner seems to be pushed toward the brink of mania on the desperate, slightly disorienting "Stuck." "Open Up" goes in a similar direction, but it's catchier and has an excellent, kind of fuzzy bassline. A fantastic, well done album.
