CRITIC REVIEWS

Pitchfork

It's not an incredibly daring or cerebral record-- Ring is electic, beat-heavy, and easy to like.

Drowned in Sound

An ultimately frustrating listen, not because of the quality of Ring per se, but because of the undoubted class of record it could have been if only it were a little more thought through.

Fans of Kimbra should find a lot to like on here.

The pure tribal and electro-pop here is endearing and authentic, even with a small handful of duller moments.

BEST TRACKS: Apply, Treasure of We, Glad, Clamor, Home

Ring is a good electro pop record that isn't anything to special but does pull off wonderfully what it's going for, and that is a beautifully crafted and simplistic record that is easy on the ears. from it's entrancing electro beats to its warm and mellow female vocals, Ring is a record that's hard not to like.

Best Track: T
Worst Track: Treasure Of We

The high points on this album are incredibly high, especially if you value rhythm and typically enjoy female-fronted synth pop.
