CRITIC REVIEWS

84
Pitchfork

Interstellar is a big, second-album leap of faith into deeper waters, a sparkling synth-pop record that wants very badly to mean something to dreamy, hyper-emotional twentysomethings.

80
Under The Radar

It's Rose's crowning achievement to date, a gorgeously impressionistic album that's a quantum artistic leap forward for this exceptionally talented songwriter.

80
Beats Per Minute

Interstellar is gorgeous, and Rose’s finest work to date.

70
Consequence of Sound

Interstellar may not bring something wholly original or novel to the already crowded scene of like-minded, nostalgic, ethereal pop acts, but its 32 minutes are simply too sublimely crafted to ignore.

70
Drowned in Sound

Although not quite out of this world as its title suggests, Interstellar represents a haughty development in Frankie Rose's artistic capabilities. 

70
The 405

Interstellar is a thoroughly beguiling record, a bold and brave departure that seduces you with its otherworldly charms. 

67
A.V. Club

While Interstellar presents Rose’s music in a shiny, seductive new package, the contents remain similarly ephemeral.

60
NME

There’s a certain lack of substance throughout the album which isn’t fully covered up by Rose’s elegant stoner shimmying. 

50
No Ripcord

Perhaps the biggest issue with Interstellar is the lack of variety that it displays.
