Pitchfork

What makes Gem feel like a such step forward (and such a straight-up enjoyable romp) is the way it playfully appropriates the debauched excess of glam rock to achieve its own singular vibe.

PopMatters

For with every couple of engaging and captivating song comes a track that feels a little flat – experimental for the sake of experiment’s sake.

The 405

It seems to be an upbeat pop song which shines above the other tracks on this album
