CRITIC REVIEWS

100
Drowned in Sound

R.I.P. is the most fully realised, ambitious and rewarding project that Cunningham has yet put to record

90
FACT Magazine

R.I.P is a fantastical, fascinating album: as Actress intended, it feels not really of this world. 

90
musicOMH

R.I.P. seeks to deny electronic music many of its powerful and most recognisable conventions. 

85
Pitchfork

The innovation on R.I.P. is to put as much effort into making things clean as making them dirty, and the result is a sense of contrast

80
The 405

R.I.P. is a dizzying, wholly original bildungsroman from one of the UK's most exciting and thoughtful contemporary producers.

80
NME

Despite titles rooted in mythology and religion these tracks do not evoke anything in particular

80
Consequence of Sound

With R.I.P., Cunningham took what might be the biggest risk of his career and came away with the biggest reward.

65
Beats Per Minute

Its upper register is colored an oddly disinfected monochrome, rendering the tracks bone-cold and often emotionless.

when the tracks connect with each other it seems dull, when they dont it seems pointless
