CRITIC REVIEWS

80
AllMusic

The whole work hits like a long-forgotten memory. Fans of Picture You, or of wistful atmosphere in general, will want to dig deep into Ambulance, and, to its credit, will find the room to do so.

The Guardian
Their third album has an unyielding mood of beatific sadness, of wallowing happily in misery, that makes it blissful rather than a trial.

Paste

The record remains a close cousin of Picture You, and with its comparatively brief length, it’s hard not to hear it as an encore as much as it is a follow-up. Surely the group has earned a round of applause.

No Ripcord

A splendid follow up, Ambulance captures that feeling of melancholy through the eyes of wander, even if their presence is always felt.

70
Pitchfork

This is mood music in the best sense of the term: insular, all-enveloping and deeply sensuous. The Amazing grab hold of a small range of emotions—depression, regret, angst, longing—and hang on for dear life. Ambulance is a long walk home from the bar in the dead of winter.

PopMatters

Gentle Stream and Picture You are charmingly hazy records, and the best parts of Ambulance add some clarity to that mix, which in turn adds new complications. Some moments here, though, seem forced in their haziness, more intentionally muddled than made sweetly gauzy.

Not their best, but has some great moments.
