CRITIC REVIEWS

Each listen reveals another layer, and the album wears incredibly well over obsessive revisiting.

PopMatters

Even with these toe-dips in fuzzier, darker grooves, there’s still a sanguine blanket that covers Nine Types of Light.

Tiny Mix Tapes

TV on the Radio's emphasis on love and companionship feels vital.

Consequence of Sound

Nine Types of Light, continues to explore their ever-increasing accessibility with infectious results, albeit with more sonic sparseness and optimistic lyrics.

Nowhere near as integral as earlier material (impossible to top), but it still contains some of their most memorable songs.

Bon album
NR
Less memorable than their previous material, and cleaner still, but not entirely worth avoiding. There's some good songs. Also they trick listeners by naming the first song "Second Song".... cruel
NR
Not as good as its two predecessors but thats far from a complaint. A very intriguing listen.
