CRITIC REVIEWS

A.V. Club

While her peers would spend an album weaving in and out of proverbial rabbit holes, Le Bon’s kaleidoscope is firmly focused.

NME

A common thread can be found in ‘CYRK’, Cate’s second album: the application of a sincere pop-song sensibility, and a yen for the surreal that sidesteps the zany.

Beats Per Minute

CYRK still feels like one of those rare records that serves as an honest detour from the mores of ‘everything.’

Consequence of Sound

Her haunting, Welsh-infused vocals stand as the driving force behind an album of mixed traits, mingling the familiar gloom with experimental pop.
