CRITIC REVIEWS

Clash
Musically ‘Cometa’ sounds like an old C-90 cassette found by the side of the road. The music is wonky and distressed. The lyrics are half-spoken, half-crooned; everything sounds like it being played at the wrong speed, but it feels right because of it. This is Hakim at his best.

AllMusic

Rarely deviating from a mix of elation and stupefaction, Cometa doesn't have the range of emotions examined on Green Twins and Will This Make Me Good, but frayed-nerve howls, phrases of distress ... would have disturbed the groove.

Under The Radar

Hakim has a knack for crafting songs that burn slowly and steadily, and while they lack the depth and development needed to reach a full fire on COMETA, fans of Hakim’s previous work may still find the gentle glow of his latest effort enjoyable.

Pitchfork
The Brooklyn-based crooner’s abundant talent vanishes behind hazy production and indistinct writing.

With the way "Cometa" is mixed and produced, I felt that none of its songs was boring. It is immersive, really engaging and Nick Hakim's vocal performance is extremely good. One of my favourite albums of 2022 so far.

Nick Hakim - Cometa (2022)

Hakim's best since Green Twins.
Really chill and smooth psychedelic soul with a lot of interesting sonic details and textures.
Have a feeling this will grow on me over time.

I want to like Nick Hakim so badly but I think I prefer his live versions without the woozy production
