The Skinny

In Search of the Miraculous is a work of indisputable artistic maturity entwined with sharply beautiful poetic integrity that current fans will recognise immediately.

God Is in the TV

In Search of the Miraculous is another brilliant record from the best band in the country whose star is rising.

The Line of Best Fit

In Search of the Miraculous finds Desperate Journalist striving and challenging themselves, happily searching for that sense of the sublime in a world that will outlive us all.

I only skipped through some tracks but I already got the impression that this is a bad record with bad production, underwhelming vocals and cheesy songwriting.

"In Search of the Miraculous" has a few solid tracks, but the instrumentation is bland, the hooks get worse as the album goes on and the entire album is filled with indie rock/dream pop cliches. Overall, it fails to surprise.

Fav Tracks: Satellite, Murmuration, Argonauts, Jonatan

Least Fav Tracks: Ocean Wave, Cedars, Girl of the Houses
