"Envy of None does not rely on epic solos or powerful riffs, which, again, could have been expected. No, the musicians prefer to focus on the tone and atmosphere, creating one of the musical poles that holds the album, but does not steal the show.

This approach allows them to highlight the work done by vocalist Maiah Wynne. With her ethereal and haunting melodies, she accents the atmosphere created by her bandmates, but also infuses a bit of restraint to simplify perception. She serves as a kind of order in the musical chaos.

On Envy of None the band balances between atmosphere and conventional structures. The opening track Never Said I Love You is an excellent cut and electrifying pop song, which is not devoid of certain darkness. It is also a kind of anomaly on the album, as there is no other track like it here. Instead, they move away from such outright poppiness and focus more on ambient atmosphere. Shadow provides an eerie feeling of the swampy South combined with dark rhythms akin to Depeche Mode. Other tracks possess hypnotic quality (Liar, Enemy), bringing to mind comparisons to Nine Inch Nails or Massive Attack, although not as aggressive. Choruses on Dog’s Life flirt with industrial, but, again, do not involve its typical heaviness. At times the band takes a breather and go for melancholic contemplation like on Kabul Blues or Old Strings." (Sputnik Music review)
