CRITIC REVIEWS

Despite its attempts to reach for the pop stratosphere though, it remains resolutely grounded for the most part.

59
Pitchfork

All complaints aside, much like Music for Men, Joyful Noise is an inherently enjoyable pop album at its core, endearing even for all its missteps and pandering. 

58
A.V. Club

A Joyful Noise signals that Gossip has little interest in setting aside its dance-pop objective. 

50
PopMatters

Right now Gossip seems to have lost focus.

40
Drowned in Sound

A Joyful Noise is a femme-power event album too shallow to achieve the import its creators intended.

40
Consequence of Sound

A Joyful Noise is Gossip’s stumbling step into the world of shiny, straightforward, satisfying pop.

- Whatever happened to the gossip that used to keep us good company during those, nu-garage days and filled the front pages of the music press?
- It has moved to the back pages and no one seems to care anymore.
