Blender (Magazine)
3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t will haunt your dreams. Acoustic guitars strummed in time with dance beats, tinny vocals and tons of slap-back reverb -- it's like some magical pop formula concocted long ago..."

Product Description:

Recording information: Linear Studios, Sydney, Australia; Soundworks Music Studio, Sydney, New South Wales, Austr.
WALKING ON A DREAM is the debut album by Empire of the Sun, the Australian duo that includes Luke Steele of pop-rockers the Sleepy Jackson and Nick Littlemore of dance/electronica ensemble Pnau. Together they find a common ground between their stylistically disparate backgrounds, turning out tracks that incorporate both the psych-tinged pop sensibilities of Steele's previous recordings with the dance-driven snap and sparkling synth flavors of Littlemore's work with Pnau. There's a giddiness to the whole affair that lends a spirit of fun to the album, one that could easily appeal to a whole new audience unfamiliar with either man's past.
