CRITIC REVIEWS

80
AllMusic

No band will ever be able to replace the Go-Betweens or fill the void their demise left, but if Dick Diver keep making albums as deeply satisfying as Melbourne, Florida, the pain will be a little less severe.

80
Paste
These are solidly constructed pop jams, sometimes introspective but never insular, occasionally caustic in a way that’s more resigned than snotty, and always smart but with an appreciation for the simple pleasures of a good rock song.
80
PopMatters

Melbourne, Florida is ultimately the work of a group coming into its own, embracing a more mature sound and one more suited to its literary-minded origins.

80
FasterLouder

Melbourne, Florida is a mature, confident record, taking the band out of the old neighbourhood and into the world.

78
Pitchfork

Dick Diver sound at peace on Melbourne, Florida, both certain of what they are now and certain that they could be almost anything in the future.

Great poppy songs, with a slacker side
