For Our Dearly Departed does as any good second album should and presents a band putting forth a significant effort not to repeat itself. Indeed, Early, Allen, and Pavlovsky with their associates have crafted a finely assorted blend of rhythmic and melodic electro music that expands on their previous formulas while adhering to their inherent mix of experimentalism and mass appeal. The diverse range of tastes at play may perhaps be just outside the bounds of uniformity for some, making For Our Dearly Departed a disjointed listen, if one that is enjoyably so. If nothing else, there is a cohesive flow from beginning to end that makes the album worth the listen and Retrogramme a band to keep one’s ears open for.
