New Music said of their album, "In the wake of That's Your Fire. Aloha's breathtaking and complex collection of jazz-based, vibraphone-enhanced lullabies, the band's sophomore release hits like a hurricane. They praised its "pretty melodies".
Sugar needs more of that variety. Aloha throws everything they have- their biggest arrangements and most belted-out lyrics- at almost every song on the album. Near the end, "Dissolving" and "I Wish No Chains Upon You" each sound like just more anthemic bricks in the wall: either the band or the listener feels a little tapped. And Sugar could use more of the slow, spare tunes that Aloha was known for: in fact, the one thing this album truly lacks is one of the trademark, vaguely sappy ballads that the band is obviously trying to avoid.

Aloha's Sugar is an excellent formation of melodious guitar strums, delicate pitter-patters of the drum, mellifluous bass parts, and piano and electronic sounds that are all raveled and tangled up in the all-encompassing sweetness of a vibraphone. I'm sure a lot of people are reluctant to give Aloha a chance, but Sugar is a highly rewarding listen if you can get past your fear of the vibraphone. Honestly, it may be one of the most beautiful instruments you'll ever hear, and Aloha perfectly utilizes its resounding quality with great gentle indie-rock.
