CRITIC REVIEWS

80
musicOMH

The Cave Singers synthesize folk, rock, and world music sounds from the 1960s through the present in an original way.

70
PopMatters

The band demonstrates a keen awareness of how much to push and pull in any particular direction in its now firmly established folk/blues/rock axis. 

60
DIY

Nice. Competent. Completely forgettable.

60
The 405

With some re-prioritising, cultivating and time on the cutting room floor Naomi's feet would've found ground.

60
No Ripcord

Naomi is a decent album, not a good one. It might be forgotten as soon as you're done listening to it.

58
Pretty Much Amazing

On Naomi, the Cave Singers don’t really fail at anything; however, save for a couple of moments, they don’t offer up anything all that memorable either.

50
Drowned in Sound

Ultimately though, they don’t commit enough to the sonic range which they eventually bring to bear, focusing too much on middle-of-the-road indie-folk.

50
Consequence of Sound

While these moments are all well and good, they leave this record feeling like No Witch part two, rather than its own, post-trilogy entity.

Purchasing Naomi from Amazon helps support Album of the Year. Or consider a donation?
