CRITIC REVIEWS

80
Under The Radar

Choir of Young Believers has expanded upon the blueprint outlined on their well-crafted first album and channeled it into a sophomore release that's really outstanding.

79
Paste

Both bold and refreshing, Rhine Gold’s dreamy approach to its dark arrangements delivers a unique take on orchestral pop.

73
Beats Per Minute

Allow it to deceptively wash over you a few times though and eventually you will be pulled down into their murky but shimmering world.

musicOMH

It feels like the soundtrack to an intimate film, sounds gently lapping around you until you’re swallowed up by them. 

70
PopMatters

Rhine Gold is an album that demands scrutiny, and it’s definitely worth taking the time to engage in.

70
Consequence of Sound

With this record, he and his choir may very well have found that desired breath of fresh air without abandoning the immensely solid groundwork of album #1.

60
Drowned in Sound

There’s ambition, surprise and innovation. It’s just that it feels like COYB go on autopilot at certain times, which detracts from the album as a whole.
