CRITIC REVIEWS

A.V. Club

While the sonic landscape initially captures attention, the band’s pop maneuverings just as frequently stun.

Consequence of Sound

Every track is full to the absolute brim with the genius of seasoned veterans.

Pitchfork

Cut Copy have the architecture of dance music down perfectly and the confidence to execute the genre's moves with absolute precision.

Drowned in Sound

Zonoscope might well be the band's boldest effort to date.

It's another step nearer the masterpiece this band are increasingly capable of delivering.

PopMatters

Zonoscope is a deviation with mostly good ideas, some great ones, and enough sparkling synth ambrosia and sing-along chorus hooks to get you through.

ALBUM NEEDS TO MULTIPLE LISTENING!

The magic of this album is that it does not discover it after you have listened to the first.
Maybe it's crazy, but I find this album better than its predecessor yet fantastic In Ghost Colours.
Album Zonoscope is produced and refined in detail.

The best tracks - This Is All We've Got, Take Me Over and Hanging Onto Every Heartbeat

Overrated - Need You Now and Where I'm Going poor - the rest of the album are amazing.

Damn............what a horrible fall from grace after In Ghost Colours. There's some good hidden gems in here, but it's NO WHERE NEAR on par from their first three albums.
