CRITIC REVIEWS

70
Under The Radar

This may be a directionless paella of genres and styles, but the band is assured and accomplished enough to pull each track off with aplomb.

68
Paste

Daughter of Cloud is a staggering 17 tracks, so it takes a few hit-or-miss listens to locate its gems. 

60
Drowned in Sound

While Daughter of Cloud houses a number of Barnes' most flamboyantly weird musical ideas, they're also frequently some of his hollowest

58
Pitchfork

Daughter of Cloud accurately depicts an artist who has pushed his artistic license to its very limit. 

50
NME

It might be hard to fully compute right now, but American sextet Of Montreal used to be pretty good

50
Consequence of Sound

Daughter of Cloud knows exactly what it is, who it is trying to serve, and can hardly be criticized too sharply for having b-sides that sound like b-sides.
