CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

As Sivan's evolution continues, it's a wonder to see him refine his sound and find his voice. In a Dream is quite the tease, hinting at more exciting stylistic growth while giving fans just enough to keep sated.

Pitchfork
The Australian pop singer finds freedom in the EP format, breaking the family-friendly veneer of past releases and serving up his most idiosyncratic music yet.

Spectrum Culture

In a Dream is Sivan’s escape from the past that can still haunt us in our dreams.

Slant Magazine
Rather than significantly alter or challenge the singer’s previous approach, the EP merely embellishes it.

Cantando sobre os momentos de um relacionamento com altos e baixos, 'In A Dream' é um EP que segue a mesma linha de tudo já feito por Troye Sivan, exceto as experimentações que se limitam nos breakings instrumentais no final de cada faixa e uma adoção maior do synthpop com moldes industriais.

Something that I found really annoying about this project is the fact that pretty much every song sounds so amazing and has something really special going for it and then it all just falls apart at the last second.

I've been watching Troye grow up in front of my eyes, and I'm so proud of him now... He became such a cool artist, and I don't mean that because he's trendy or anything, but for the evolution of his sound in so little time. There isn't many queer artists like him, but of course he's not the only one. In a Dream feels like a project that should've been bigger, maybe a full album but somehow it works as an EP as well.

A pleasant surprise. This is the first time I've listened to Troye Sivan's music, and it's safe to say I'm a fan now.
Honestly the only thing that is constraining this EP from being great is it being an EP. The sound of the EP is great, yet pretty underdeveloped. If there was more time put into it and Troye could add in a couple more tracks that can keep its consistency, this would've been great.
Favorite tracks: Take Yourself Home, Easy, STUD, IN A DREAM
