CRITIC REVIEWS

79
Pitchfork

It's something of a triumph for Thorburn, to match his most emotionally devastating material yet with music that's so close-sounding and unassumingly, unabashedly pretty.

75
Paste

It’s an inspired look at the grieving human heart. And one of the best Islands records so far, to boot.

73
Beats Per Minute

While A Sleep & A Forgetting is a bold new statement for the band, the album occasionally treads on the mundane level, due to its similarly-orchestrated tracks.

70
PopMatters

That infectious, childlike zeal was so integral to the first part of their career that A Sleep is jarringly unfamiliar at first.

60
No Ripcord

It's just that, well, it gets a bit boring, a bit sleepy, and altogether, it's a bit forgettable.
