CRITIC REVIEWS

85
Beats Per Minute

Free of any hip genre-signifiers, 2 sees DeMarco find his home in an endless jangle, humming down the Main Street of your brain with a guitar slung over his shoulder.

82
Pitchfork

He's still not entirely upfront, but he has a knack for building songs where the realness of his subject matter lies just below the surface. 

80
NME

What '2' makes clear, quickly, is that DeMarco is a skilful songwriter.

80
No Ripcord

Compared to Rock and Roll Night Club, 2 is a more polished and refined take on his brand of minimalist rock, structured around his keen songwriting.

musicOMH

There is something unique about Mac DeMarco in 2012, his sound is very traditional in both form and style but there is a very refreshing quality at the heart of 2.

70
The 405

Every song is fascinating in that no matter how much the meaning of each track seems obvious, there will be something new to consider or understand after every listen.

70
Consequence of Sound

He owns these songs of slackerhood completely, delivering a lean collection of 11 that concisely communicate the nature of the 20-something daydreamer – no more, no less.

Such a fun and short album to listen to over and over. The guitar is one of my favourite features. The riffs are fun and very slack. This guy definitely knows how to have fun with making an album.

Favourite tracks: Ode To Viceroy, Cooking Up Something Good, My Kind of Woman, Freaking Out The Neighborhood, Robson Girl, Still Together

The most illin' and chillin' guitar album of the decade. Like a lazy Frank Zappa crossed with Kurt Vile.
