CRITIC REVIEWS

musicOMH

Yeasayer’s wit and inventiveness always manages to avoid any kind of descent into cliché.

AllMusic

Odd Blood’s emphasis on genre-mashing can overwhelm the weaker tunes, whose melodies are sometimes less interesting than the arrangements themselves, but the album has enough highlights to outweigh any filler on side B.

Pitchfork

A tighter, slicker, poppier sophomore album tries on every imaginable sound and style-- but none is as original or effective as the one they started with.
