CRITIC REVIEWS

Clash

Come the second time listening you start to stop questioning the diversity and simply celebrate the fact they’ve got the repertoire, and guts, to mix everything up and make it work.

NME

Their 2016 debut album concentrated largely on Oasis and their aftermath ... while this second LP broadens their scope to take in baggy, shoegaze, jangle pop and even some ill-advised bits that sound like Travis.

AllMusic

As was the case with Hills End, the sonic and architectural puppetry is meticulous and heartfelt, but the absence of any sort of innovation induces a sort of pleasant fatigue that grows decidedly less agreeable with repeated spins.

A bit like Greta Van Fleet in a way, lacks a bit of originality, but not to the grating extent said band does. Some really solid tracks are scattered throughout the album, but the band's insistence on sounding like Brit-pop holds this back.

Best Track: Dawning.

DMA's second album is an ok listen but nowhere near enough to keep you switched on from front to back.

Best Songs: For Now, Dawning, In The Air, Emily Whyte.

Too often does their sophomore album feel like they're trapped in the likes of Oasis, The Stone Roses, and likeminded bands to feel like their own. Despite this, there are some nice pickings.

Favorite tracks: For Now, Time & Money, Break Me
