CRITIC REVIEWS

Beats Per Minute

Shangri-La captures the spirit of uncertainty and restlessness that 21st century modernity has created.

Working on many levels: entertaining, thought-provoking, musically satisfying and yes, still pretty funny too in parts.

Consequence of Sound

There’s a certain magic in being able to shake your booty to music with heavy themes, and YACHT nails that duality perfectly here.

Drowned in Sound

YACHT have concocted a record to match their peers in Metronomy, Cut Copy and Friendly Fires.

No Ripcord

This is a fun and highly commendable record; well produced and with some excellent pop songs.

65
Pitchfork

The record tends to burden its good times with a few too many ideas that simply aren't that distinctive.
