CRITIC REVIEWS

There’s not an ounce of fat to be found. It might be a little lo-fi in places, but it doesn’t matter, this is the definition of an album that is all-killer-no-filler.

Drowned in Sound

What’s really surprising about Cooke’s secret life as a pop musician, it’s how weirdly perfect the execution of Ripe 4 Luv is.

80
Spin

What elevates Ripe 4 Luv beyond four absolute bangers and four darn-good in-betweens is how it uncovers the creepiness of power pop relationship dynamics.

75
Consequence of Sound

Even though it has a foot planted in two very different camps, Ripe 4 Luv’s pop smarts save what could have easily turned into a messy genre exercise in lesser hands.

Pitchfork
Tying some of the loose ends from his previous projects, though never too neatly, it’s Cook’s cleanest, most easygoing release yet, and far and away his catchiest.

AllMusic

Ben Cook is no doubt a very talented guy and he puts his talents to very good use on Ripe 4 Luv, crafting the kind of pop music that should appeal to anyone who likes singing along, feeling things, and a little bit of weirdness mixed into their fizzy cocktails.

Fucked UpのギタリストであるBen Cookによるソロ・デビュー作。彼はきっとOasisが好きなのだろう。極上のメロディと歌心が詰まったギターロック・アルバム。

This was i nice surprise. Really liked the experimental feel of the album and the different styles on it. Also, "Wrong Crowd" is a massive song.

Favorite moments: Crushing Sensation, Crawling Back To You, Wrong Crowd.
