Pitchfork

Hibernation is a record for pulling up the covers and dreaming and then venturing out to the town to see the strange and magical world of encroaching adulthood.

Beats Per Minute

While The Year of Hibernation doesn’t rocket into the stratosphere so much, it’s still an exemplary debut.

Consequence of Sound

His bedroom project soars well beyond four walls, with a sound so vast it seems more than what one man could make.

No Ripcord

If you break it all apart, there’s nothing to shock the senses, and there’s nothing particularly innovative about the execution of everything together, and the melodies aren’t the catchiest — but that’s not exactly the point.

60
PopMatters

To launch it to greatness, this album needs details, images, even more defined musical parts that make this specific anxiety something we can all recognize.

Youth Lagoon's debut album sure is comfy, but the minimalistic approach to these songs really leave no effect on me whatsoever. '17' is a great tune though.

The guitar sounds very nice and traditional for as far as Dream Pop goes. Yet, the drums sound very sharp and completely breaks the atmosphere that the guitar creates. On top of that, vocals are very lazy and their dreamy filter doesn't cover up for anything. This album has good points but they get bitch slapped out of the sky by the conflicting styles.

Quite simply my favourite album ever.
