CRITIC REVIEWS

83
Pitchfork

Nocturne is painted with the same colors as Gemini, but the resolution is much higher.

81
Beats Per Minute

Nocturne proves that Tatum is firmly at the centre of the Wild Nothing universe, and around him orbits his dreams, influences and abilities, which seem to stretch out infinitely.

80
The 405

... it is a soothing and ethereal listen with songs that would do well in the charts as well as songs meant for private and reflective listening.

80
Under The Radar

This time around, Tatum is attacking the form with a more "adult" approach, careful in its construction and aware of its context—but somehow eternally youthful in its vision, still lost in the clouds.

80
PopMatters

It’s an album made of dreams, haunted visions, and echoes that extend forever.

76
Paste

The record is fun and lovely when it’s happening—and you’ll want it to happen a lot—it just doesn’t leave you with much fat to chew on after. 

75
Pretty Much Amazing

This homogeneous approach leads to an all around gorgeous album; but it also sacrifices the kind of tension and complexity that makes a good album great.

75
A.V. Club

On Nocturne, he’s matured considerably as a songwriter, demonstrating a knack for the subtle nuances that make memorable songs tick. 

70
Drowned in Sound

Maybe if Tatum had taken the 'less is more' approach, Nocturne's impact would have been greater.

70
NME

While ‘Nocturne’ is gorgeous, it’s a little too predictable to become truly exciting. 

60
Consequence of Sound

Unlike Gemini, many of the tracks on Nocturne feature a homogeneity that begins to tire by the eighth or ninth track.

50
No Ripcord

Unfortunately, the album suffers greatly from following in the same footsteps of other 80s new wave revivalists: being safe and repetitive.
