CRITIC REVIEWS

80
AllMusic

The album's potent mix of soul-searching lyrics and spaced-out sonics lends itself to deep thought and accompanied stargazing.

musicOMH

If the album is never quite this good again, it’s still a fascinating listen, and this opening trio sets the tone for the rest of Green Twins’ trippily soulful wanderings.

80
Under The Radar

The funneled, slow churning, sample drum-loop rhythms and translucent sheets of filtered guitar, horns, and keys deepen the dimensions where reflections can loiter.

80
The Observer

Hakim drifts between genres and moods, displaying a soft spot for shadowy beats, Shuggie Otis, hip-hop and the early 70s, when psychedelia was embraced by R&B.

79
Pitchfork

Green Twins is full of life and energy, often operating at a fever pitch.

60
The 405

Green Twins is impeccably tailored and has some gorgeous ideas. What it lacks is the confidence to stretch its colour palette into areas the listener might not immediately associate with other, trailblazing artists.

Excellent combination. Indie and soul. Lo-fi and flavor.

Another standout from the experimental psychedelic rock side of things. Even the psychedelic label may not fully fit what Hakim accomplishes on this album; a voice full of soul and emotion.
