3.5 greatjday | December 5th 12

This was a surprising follow up to the bands debut EP. It doesn't have the same high points as the first, the
tracks are generally less interesting then The Distance In Between andFur Lined from the first EP. But An Omen
is an overall better album, and a lot more interesting to listen to. The singer no longer sounds bored and
lifeless, the beats are a lot more detailed, and the overall tone, while still a downer, can actually be a little
lighthearted at times with the track like Ice Age and On a Wing and The Sleep of Reason. It still doesn't
compare to the work of NIN, but I think this is a sign of good faith that such work is on its way.

4.0 excellentAlexTM510 | November 29th 12

Pushing further in the abstract and obscure, HTDA finds a very interesting array of textures with An Omen. Finding a creepy atmospheric medium that is strangely tense and relaxing at the same time. HTDA seem content with looming in the meditative zone that prevents songs from really exploding. But instead of this backfiring, this really works well for the most part of the EP. This may not be love at first listen, but a few listens with the EP will show itself in it's rich electronic textures and production. Recommended.
