CRITIC REVIEWS

90
PopMatters

Cox has composed his most accessible set of songs to date and offered further proof as to why he’s one of the most important songwriters working today.

90
Consequence of Sound

Parallax offers a miniature glass menagerie of fragile songs ascribed with heaps of intimacy, all shedding the most light on Cox’s whole artistic persona.

90
No Ripcord

Cox sounds comfortable and confident, and has made the best solo album of his prolific career.

87
Pitchfork

Parallax feels like a more complete work than any other Atlas Sound record, with the differences between the songs less distinct and everything flowing together more naturally.

80
Drowned in Sound

This follows the same carefree philosophy that made his back catalogue so warmly enjoyable: 'let’s just see what happens, shall we?'

77
Beats Per Minute

Parallax can’t help but feel like a win for this cause because it symbolizes growth more than out-and-out excellence.
