Beats Per Minute

Only In Dreams is rich enough that it is not hard to imagine people bickering about the standouts.

musicOMH

The record has taken adversity and chosen to stand atop it, looking to the future instead of being buried beneath its weighty pressures.

Pitchfork

The pristine production sounds great, but it makes the lack of complexity and occasional shortcomings ... all too apparent.

60
Drowned in Sound

It’s time for the Dum Dum Girls to join our sordid reality rather than swoon at it from afar.

50
PopMatters

Only in Dreams is emblematic of an entire strain of prosaic, backward-looking indie rock that’s given too much leniency contrary to what it actually has to offer.

40
Consequence of Sound

There are some songs to love, but you can only take so many variations of the same theme.
