Praise for PEBY:

“A whole other world of pop music – an absolutely unique, enchanting, and irreplaceable vision of how the stuff can work” – Pitchfork (27th best album [and highest-rated Domino release] of 2008)

“Improves upon [his previous] albums’ strengths – wide-eyed eclecticism among other things – managing greater coherence and scope than anything he’s ever done… astounding” – Cokemachineglow

“Parallax Error Beheads You is an enormous achievement, one that expands the syntax of the medium” – Momus (best album of 2008)

“This year has bubbled and bleeped with the sound of bedroom electronica that harks back to the past, but the third album by Max Tundra is the most joyful of all. A pop tour de force, bursting with bright, bouncy hooks” – The Guardian

“It is a near masterpiece, elastic, eccentric and eclectic” – musicOMH.com

“He’s never made anything approaching a bad record before, but the greatness that Max Tundra’s turned out to be capable of still proves to be a revelation of earth-shattering proportions” – The Quietus

“Mannered English eccentricity never sounded so deliriously thrilling” – All Music Guide

“What Max has created as a result is nothing short of amazing” – Urb

“Jacobs works in a peerless vacuum located in a hazy plot point on the pop timeline, located somewhere in-between outright sugary pop and nerdy bedroom electronica” – Prefix Magazine

“It hurts and twists your brain until you start to crave this Tundra terrorism” – NME

“Max Tundra’s music is smart, engaging, and both challenging and fun to listen to. That’s what makes it unusual, and worth treasuring” – PopMatters

“His maniacal energy is infectious” – The Wire

“Mr and Mrs Tundra can be very proud of their boy” – The Independent

“It’s eclectic, uplifting, vigorously produced and alluringly zany, yet ultimately, highly recommended listening” – Future Music

“There’s something for anyone with a taste for things multicoloured and marvellously eclectic” – Mojo

“A photogenic view of the last thirty or so years of electronic music blended into one smart-paced gem of a record… one of those rare pleasures that inspire all parts of the brain. If this is the blueprint for music’s future, we’re in good hands” – Austinist

“A modern landmark in sophisticated pop-song composition. Frank Zappa, Steely Dan, Scritti Politti, Cornelius, Prince, Daft Punk… it manages to consistently equal and even occasionally improve upon the best work by each of those artists and then some. 10/10” – Spencer Owen (mog.com)

“He has struck gold with his masterful third release – smart and relevant” – Treble

“A million-course meal stuffed into one disc from the singular mind of an itinerant musical chef” – XLR8R (Staff Pick)
