Just Once sounds both so accessible and smooth, you could almost make the argument here that Krell is overcorrecting. The listener is fully embraced by the album’s cascade of disarming orchestral arrangements. The music itself is spread out over four rich and texturous tracks (“Suicide Dream 1-3” and “Decisions”). Just Once also boasts a quite cavernous and accommodating production that provides these full-bodied songs enough room to breathe. Often prominently featured among these euphoric string swells is Krell’s distorted falsetto. His purposefully strained vocals were one of Remains’ weakest links, but their bemused detachment here complements the music exceptionally well lending it the necessary uniformity. Free from the musical pretension of their debut, How to Dress Well’s Just Once is as imminently listenable as Remains was polarizing- and more importantly, it creates anticipation for their next big release.
