CRITIC REVIEWS

Exclaim!

The beauty of Ego Death is in how it evokes the past without plagiarizing it.

HipHopDX

Each passing song drills deeper and deeper into the listener's’ soul.  It’s moody without being negative, gloomy and somber without being anywhere close to depressing.

80
PopMatters

Ego Death and The Internet require a little bit of patience, but if you are willing to give it a full go, it will reward you with one of the most interesting albums in recent memory.

80
AllMusic

One of the best noncommercial R&B albums of 2015, Ego Death is perfectly timed, in sync with -- and distinct from -- other standout releases connected to the thriving L.A. community.

The Guardian
There’s wit and honesty behind her observations of courting and heartbreak, making her pinhole focus on love more about nuance than navel-gazing. It’s just as well the band stayed together.
75
Consequence of Sound
With LGBT culture as mainstream as it’s ever been and The Internet fresh off their best album, the group seems poised for bigger and better things in the not too distant future.

Pitchfork

The Internet’s songs have always felt like scenes of salaciousness happening just out of earshot. Ego Death finally pulls us into the maelstrom.

70
Rolling Stone

Over 12 warm, spacey tracks, Syd reappropriates the satin romanticism of classic Seventies soul for 21st-century girls who want to be with girls.

To me, The Internet is definitely the most underrated thing to come out of the Odd Future collective. Really enjoyed revisiting this.

Painfully mediocre.

Love this album. Really quite special. One of the first to renew my faith in soul music which surely is in a better place than it has ever been, harking back to the glorious 60's and 70s soul peaks. Long may they record together as successfully as this. Dream gig line-up: The Internet, Thundercat, Solange.
