The Skinny

Give Utopia Defeated time, and the alien logic that binds this outstanding record begins to unfurl and initial skepticism turns to sheer awe.

The 405
He is undoubtedly an absurdly talented fellow and has the creative potential to make a truly groundbreaking album. This isn’t that, but it is a strong debut.

DIY
It’s a record that’s well-travelled, that’s absorbed a whole myriad of influence and taken two years to digest it into something cohesive. But, impressively, it’s a record that still holds its identity despite all the ideas it’s binding together.

AllMusic

While not all of Utopia Defeated's tracks are as immediately engaging as the aforementioned highlights, Perry introduces a unique vision and his impressive debut is well worth the time it takes to let it decant.

FasterLouder

Utopia Defeated is a dark and meticulously constructed debut, the violent fantasies presented within always clever, confronting and beautiful.

Especially in the first song D.D Dumbo displays all of his talent; groovy, complex, looping, easy 12-string guitar and somehow personal. But after that, the album is slightly loosing my attention while further playing. Without a doubt we will hear more of him in the future and I am looking forward to it.

Enjoyable but overall it's clearly overated. UD sounds cool but not new, UD is pretty well written sometimes but not new, UD is pretty "easy listening" but not new, ...

UD is just not enough inspired to blow my ears.
