Miller doesn’t pander for a clear cut radio single, nor does he let the fear of Internet backlash obstruct his experimental approach.

AllMusic
AllMusic

Without the hooks or the lofty lyrics, the album seems made exclusively for Miller's fans or those who right-click indie rap mixtape links on the daily.

NME
NME

Now in possession of a clearer sense of his own identity, the stoned haze of cloud-rap engulfs Miller’s rhymes as he undercuts the fug with animated lyrics and a keen sense of humour

Watching Movies with the Sound Off is a quantum leap in artistry, but it’s not without faults; the album’s about three songs too long, and a couple of the tracks in the back end just plain run together.

Miller remains the one part of the equation that’s a bit of a hard sell, even as he releases what is clearly one of independent hip-hop’s most inspired, balanced albums through the first half of 2013.

Watching Movies is Miller’s most enduring, and endearing, project yet.

Mac switches up his style on this album compared to his previous ones and the change is definitely for the best. He has much deeper and more introspective lyrics, and also a better flow and style than before. The beats throughout are pretty great as well. Best tracks- Star Room, Bird Call, Matches, Red Dot Music, Watching Movies, and Suplexes Inside o Complexes and Duplexes. A welcome change in Mac's discography.

Better lyrical content than he's had, which isn't saying much.
