CRITIC REVIEWS

90
PopMatters

Though there’s no definite number-one like last year, the conversation is absolutely one with impressive depth to it. Flood Network, in its ability to be adaptable to any season, to any emotion, to any element of the human experience, has rightfully earned its place in this conversation.

Spin

Flood Network is ultimately a record of conflict, uncertainty, destruction, and decline, all presented gleaming on a liquid-crystal display.

Pitchfork
It’s the kind of record that properly justifies the “bedroom-pop” tag, not just in the sense of where it’s made but the conflicted serenity to be found there, where our identities reconfigure in private, away from the distorting outside world.

Consequence of Sound
At any point, the record feels like it could fall apart into a pile of guitar chords and digital code. But when it hits the sweet spot, the wobble is infectious and compelling.

AllMusic

Dey's music clearly isn't going to resonate with everyone, but it's unquestionable that she has a unique vision, and Flood Network is a restlessly inventive album.

Tiny Mix Tapes

After an early rush out, Dey pulls back with a tidal recede, gearing up for a larger, more expansive pop trajectory. But for now, Flood Network shows the growing pains of acclaim, responding with a thoughtful ebb, a skim across the sand before the flood.

While initially so odd it was off-putting I have grown to love this project, its eccentricity makes it probably the most fun I have ever had with a pop album (if you could even call it that). The vocals are constantly changing pitches and the instrumentals can be very, very clunky and jarring yet somehow I feel like I can relate to this mess of sounds

“Fear O The Light” makes mashed po-tay-toes out of my soul and I don’t quite know whyyyy T___T

The whole album is just lovely but that track in particular is the best song I’ve heard in ages.
