Pitchfork

In fully realizing its comparatively modest ambitions, it's one of the strongest indie rock records of the year so far.

Consequence of Sound

Pundt’s exquisite entanglements of vivid pop, lucid electronics, and straight-up rock and roll demand to be heard.

Beats Per Minute

While all of the songs bleed into one blissfully ephemeral trip, there are bits and pieces that stick.

PopMatters

In many ways, we’ve heard all these songs before, in slightly tighter fashion, on the last two Deerhunter albums.

I've always loved Lockett's songwriting in Deerhunter. Songs like 'Desire Lines' and 'The Missing' really brought a whole different dimension to the albums they're on. After hearing this new album, I was torn to find out that most of these songs lack the passion and memorability that I would expect to hear from Lockett. It's a blissful experience, but this album sounds way too polite and inoffensive to leave much of an impression on me.

Favourite tracks: Out of Touch, Black Buzz

This album is what makes a perfect indie rock/shoegaze album. Diehard deerhunter fans would not be disappointed with this its a fantastic album and well produced.
