PopMatters

The Cherry Thing is a marvellous album. This is not some sort of vanity project or nostalgia trip. 

80
NME

That’s essentially the mode of attack of ‘The Cherry Thing’ ... lure you in with slink, then bend your mind with skronk.

80
Pitchfork

It's a remarkably well-defined, cohesive, and above all things inviting listen, and at eight tracks it feels neither slight nor needlessly sprawling. 

80
The 405

It's just fantastically accessible, tightly constructed (as far as improvisational music can be), and smart.

80
No Ripcord

It might be too pop for The Thing’s fans and too disruptive for Cherry’s, but the phenomenal performances from Cherry and Gustafsson simply blast away any genre preconceptions

80
FACT Magazine

Cherry’s quarter-decade career has been characterised by her effortless application of unparalleled pop instincts to every genre she’s dabbled in, and this remains the case here. 

60
Drowned in Sound

Neither Neneh Cherry nor The Thing are well served by the self imposed shackles within a lot of these tracks, perhaps intended to provide security while building new musical relationships. 

30
Under The Radar

It's a tough listen, shrill and disjointed.
