CRITIC REVIEWS

A.V. Club

But Valhalla does further the once-evasive band’s increasingly egalitarian ambitions, with an emphasis on evangelical swells, big guitar hooks, and the BSP’s most inviting vocal melodies yet.

Drowned in Sound

Some will decry Valhalla Dancehall's essential familiarity, but on their fourth album proper British Sea Power are a band unique, complex and confident enough in their own right to remind us why we loved them in the first place whilst making modest refinements to their sound.

Regardless, enough of Valhalla Dancehall's moments work surprisingly well, that despite its breadth and occasionally aggravating density, it becomes a spectacle worth experiencing.

No Ripcord

Valhalla Dancehall proves how they’re hardly one-dimensional flukes, always ready to curve expectations with a robust assortment of ideas.
