CRITIC REVIEWS

80
The 405

Fang Island just want you to have fun, and there's enough here to party all through the summer.

80
PopMatters

Fang Island’s message of import concerns the nature of their own chosen medium — that rock music can be fun, exciting and challenging all at the same time. 

79
Paste

Packed with simple, poignant lyrics, the record keeps things awesome without falling prey to its own overindulgent qualities.

69
Pitchfork

Maybe what Major lacks compared to its predecessor is the element of surprise, and it's not just in a musical sense.

60
Consequence of Sound

While Fang Island climbs through a share of embarrassments, they end on a genuine high point that may be powerful enough to outmaneuver the album’s earlier mistakes.

60
Beats Per Minute

While Major has a good solid handful of inspired moments, none of this material comes close to approaching the plane as that Fang Island were operating on before.

50
Drowned in Sound

This is still recognisably a Fang Island album – but one which sounds neutered somehow; the edges far too rounded, the tempos forever middling, and the guitar interplay too clean, tidy and obvious. 

50
No Ripcord

While Fang Island are as likeable as ever, Major just doesn’t do as much to get you into the spirit of their music.
