CRITIC REVIEWS

80
Drowned in Sound

A steady and unyielding record which positively beams with a newfound sense of confidence.

70
PopMatters

Share the Joy is more or less what you’ve come to expect from the trio.

60
Tiny Mix Tapes

The hooks aren’t as hooky as they used to be, though the further development of taut, extended guitar solos that began on Everything Goes Wrong mitigates this somewhat.

59
Pitchfork

Though it's their most uneven in terms of songwriting, the diversity oddly gives it more potential replay value than their prior records.

50
Consequence of Sound

Share the Joy comes across like another Vivian Girls record, which has its positives, but also means they’re not changing a whole lot or molding much new material.
