CRITIC REVIEWS

Cold War Kids new release “LA Divine” is a warm surprise in a sometimes cold and cloudy world.

70
AllMusic

L.A. Divine shows that Cold War Kids continue to expand their range -- and if they're becoming more accessible with each album, it's on their own terms.

46
Paste

L.A. Divine is frustrating in its monotonous insistence on making everything sound the same, simultaneously trying to land every single song on SiriusXM’s Alt Nation channel but not focusing enough on developing the personality of any one track.

40
DIY

Their latest sonic iteration is still not a clean fit, much like Coldplay’s pivot into EDM-lite on ‘A Head Full of Dreams’, there’s logic to what’s going on here but it still feels unnatural.
