Pitchfork

If he was feeling any pressure to validate himself and his peers, Underneath the Pine doesn't show it.

PopMatters

It makes your brain work, and its whole approach to the band’s new sound is, dare I say it, progressive.

A.V. Club

While Underneath The Pine is another killer late-night make-out album, it doesn’t do much to help Toro Y Moi stake out its own identity.

Another great release from him. Going back into his earlier work has been great so far. This may be my favorite record of his.

Favorite tracks: New Beat, Go With You, Divina, Got Blinded, How I Know, Elise, Light Black, Good Hold

Fun album to cruise through, even though I can tell that there's a lot of filler songs here

Still fantastic.

This album is a feel-good machine. There is no other album that instantly makes me in a chill, happy or danceable mood than this (maybe aside from Gorillaz' Plastic Beach).

rated this a light 77 because this starts off absolutely amazing with the music but then the style gets more and more repetitive
