CRITIC REVIEWS

70
Drowned in Sound

Whether this is an exercise in pastiche or heralding a new direction for Prince Rama, it’s definitely the most accessible record they’ve ever made.

musicOMH

As a concept Top 10 Hits… is frequently confusing, often brilliant and at times downright awful. 

68
Pitchfork

Part of what sets End of the World apart is how quickly it offers itself to parody while mostly avoiding complete self-sabotage.

65
Beats Per Minute

All in all, it’s a good old, ectoplasm-spewing time, but the album could have gone further.

54
Paste

Stripped of its clever concept, Top Ten Hits for the End of the World can be apocalyptically bland.

50
No Ripcord

Top 10 Hits of the End of the World shows some commendable growth for Prince Rama in relation to their previous work, but not even as bizarre of a concept they’ve constructed could truly make the duo stand out amongst their peers.

40
Consequence of Sound

When the Larsons stick closer to their usual tools, which is to say when they sound like themselves instead of forcing themselves on a cheesy karaoke cut, the results improve tenfold.
