CRITIC REVIEWS

The Line of Best Fit

From start to finish, it’s a delirious pleasure, even if there’s a weak moment or slip in quality, you’re blind to it as their knack for eternal happiness and glorious melodies distract you.

'Cave Rave' is outlandish, silly, summery and as brilliant as its title

Had Crystal Fighters not taken their foot of the pedal towards the end, Cave Rave could have been their breakthrough album. Instead, it’s just a very good one.

AllMusic

Overall, these songs are a fine reintroduction to a band that has worked hard to emphasize its strengths and come up with new ones.

The 405

'Cave Rave' is more of the same from the band; it is not an album of fierce innovation, but a perfect companion for sizzling meat and endless sunsets.

Consequence of Sound

Cave Rave serves as proof that staying true to your roots can not only pay off, but also be a hell of a good time.

NME

Their second album, like their first, halfheartedly dabbles in Balearic folk, but this time out, the New Age bullshit is well and truly front and centre.

While their first release had some good innovative approaches, "Cave Rave" is just a monotonous and disturbing Latin-Pop Mash
