CRITIC REVIEWS

PopMatters

Although the record could almost certainly be cut in half in order to make for one killer EP, the flashes of brilliance here are truly exceptional.

69
Paste

The general focus and fulfillment of personal goals on the album is admirable, and the pop landscape is now a little stronger because of it.

No Ripcord

There are a few really good individual songs but the album never feels unified in any obvious way.

58
Pitchfork

While Free Dimensional shows O'Regan ready for his close-up, the lack of depth results in the album title's pun becoming Diamond Rings' first truly ironic statement.

52
Beats Per Minute

It’s shiny but fluffy, and sure to be a disappointment to those hoping that O’Regan could build on the promise of Special Affectations.

John O'Regan's second album is deliberately polished just to participate in the finals of the next electro-pop race.
