CRITIC REVIEWS

91
A.V. Club

For The Walkmen, heaven is a place where the momentous has become mundane, and vice versa. 

90
musicOMH

This disc proves that their ascension to lofty heights is complete and something heavenly indeed.

90
Drowned in Sound

It presents as their most accessible and open-hearted record to date, teeming with melodicism and a more concise framework in comparison with the jagged rocks and sharpened stakes of their previous creations.

84
Paste

Its significance stems from the band’s growth and evolution, primarily reflected in the lyrics.

81
Pitchfork

Heaven feels infectiously drunk on its own good fortune and kicks out a barstool for you to drink alongside it.

80
Consequence of Sound

Flawed individuals making nearly flawless music is a hallmark of rock, so it’s no surprise that this is The Walkmen’s first rock and roll record.

80
Beats Per Minute

Thoroughly enjoyable from front to back, Heaven oozes confidence and polish.
