CRITIC REVIEWS

Northern Transmissions
While it may feel derivative on the surface, fans will find a lot to dig into from this latest record on repeat listens.

AllMusic

Ultimately, Offering lives up to its name -- Cults give more of themselves on these songs than ever before, and opening themselves to more possibilities pays off with some of their most exciting music.

God Is in the TV

With Offering, Cults have returned with a very strong set of songs, gloriously produced. Recommended!

Drowned in Sound

It might sound trite, but for a band long since written off as blog-buzz ephemera, it frames their return in the redemptive context it deserves, because it just so happens that Offering is also Cults’ finest work to date.

The 405

All in all, Offering is well suited to its release date, the perfect contented collection of pop vibes to kick back with as the fall readily approaches.

A.V. Club

They return refreshed and optimistic on the new Offering, which retains the retro pop sensibility and breathy, high-pitched vocals of Cults’ earlier work. But the expansive, echoing space that defined those first two records (its self-titled 2011 debut sounds like it was recorded in an empty high school auditorium) is filled here with layers of synthesizer sheen.
