  1. 8.1 |   Gig Soup

    Armed with glimmering keys and cosmic beats, Seth Haley offers a polished, cinematic narrative set to enchant listeners. Forget chilled-out synth-wave, because this is stargaze

  2. 8.0 |   Exclaim

    For fans of synth-wave instrumentals or for those who want an oft-compelling, free-floating soundtrack to their workday, nobody throws a throwback party like Com Truise

  3. 8.0 |   The Skinny

    Iteration isn't a major departure from earlier album Galactic Melt, instead offering a new manifestation of Haley's signature style as he tests his skills on a different narrative

  4. 8.0 |   All Music

    With Iteration, Haley has retained all of the qualities that made Com Truise so appealing while blowing everything up into a higher resolution than before

  5. 7.5 |   A.V. Club

    Com Truise introduces a few shadows to his neon-lit world on Iteration

  6. 7.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    Although Iteration is billed as an emotionally engaging album, finding the true feeling among towers of 80s pop synths and sequencers feels difficult at times. But never mind that - the production is perfection

  7. 7.0 |   PopMatters

    On his first full-lenghth album in five years, Seth Haley, a.k.a. Com Truise, unleashes his usual battery of vivid retro-synth anthems

  8. 6.7 |   Pitchfork

    Seth Haley works within an especially constrained 1980s aesthetic. But he pushes himself towards a higher level of sophistication on his new LP

  9. 6.5 |   The 405

    If he hopes to continue the project, he may eventually need to adapt. But for now, his tried and true formula of evoking 80s nostalgia in an authentic and beautiful way continues to work

  10. 6.2 |   Earbuddy

    The album is chill and exuberant for sure. Children of the ’80s will enjoy it. However, it lacks enough variety for them to likely love it

  11. 6.0 |   Mojo

    A winsome, nostalgic atmosphere. Print edition only

  12. 6.0 |   Spectrum Culture

    We wait patiently for it to drive us somewhere, but it abandons us at the last moment and explains that it didn’t just feel up to it tonight

  13. 5.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    What ‘Iteration’ does, it does really quite well, but it also feels very much like a piece of background music; something which exists outside of your full consciousness

  14. 5.0 |   Under The Radar

    It works; there's just not enough of it
