7.7 Eyeball
2008 

Sweeping acoustics and a solemn grandeur make Wolftron's debut a true thing of beauty. The work of Kenny Choi and the latest addition to Wolf- bands has a gripping chamber-pop feel, but also an uncommon elegance that makes Flesh & Fears one of the smoothest releases of 2008.

For a one-man project, Wolftron is able to wrap several layers of instruments into a tight package.  Reverbed vocals lead the way for nimble guitars, alt-rock drums, and orchestral effects throughout Flesh & Fears.  Combined, they form many graceful moments like the saunter of "Blueberry Waves", the piano-licked steps on "Beautybird", and the haunted opposite "Uglybird".  The rest of the album is as comfortable, if not more.

There's no denying the innate charm of Flesh & Fears.  It's an aesthetic masterpiece and gives the listener a reason to believe in pop again.
