CRITIC REVIEWS

90
Consequence of Sound

Divine Fits is more than the sum of its rangy, resplendent leading men

83
A.V. Club

Game as Daniel is in a supporting role, his spotlight turns provide the album’s highlights. 

80
No Ripcord

Divine Fits are more like a twin-dragon of mythological proportions – two sound manipulators known for their scattered, offbeat ideas with a similar work ethic coming together to execute their vision and taking it to the nth degree.

80
The 405

A Thing Called Divine Fits is brave and shrewd throughout, whilst never losing sight of what makes an album great. 

80
Under The Radar

A Thing Called the Divine Fits does a fantastic job building on many of the strengths of its members to create a new, exciting project. 

76
Pitchfork

A Thing Called Divine Fits might seem the Platonic ideal of indie rock collaboration, but the most memorable moments have Boeckner's signature.

70
Beats Per Minute

Rather than a cohesive structured debut effort that was the product of a cooperative band, you have a Frankenstein-ian melding of cast off parts.

70
PopMatters

They’re not there yet, but with Boeckner’s insistence that the group will be the primary focus of its members for the foreseeable future, they might just get it right next time.
