CRITIC REVIEWS

A.V. Club

Odd Blood is every bit as dense as its predecessor, with every inch of space teeming with exhausting polyrhythmic detail and time-warped synth sounds. Yeasayer is still adept at filtering primal emotions through the complex circuits of the future; it’s just that that future looks a lot brighter than it used to.

Yeasayer’s wit and inventiveness always manages to avoid any kind of descent into cliché.

AllMusic

Odd Blood’s emphasis on genre-mashing can overwhelm the weaker tunes, whose melodies are sometimes less interesting than the arrangements themselves, but the album has enough highlights to outweigh any filler on side B.

American Songwriter

The fact that these guys can expand their sound and still feel entirely comfortable in their own specific framework, much less top themselves a second time around, is proof enough that Yeasayer are one of the best at what they do.

We couldn't have asked for better singles to start off the new decade than Ambling Alp and ONE.
