CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

Ferreira manages to balance her teen pop past with her current interest in indie rock in surprising, creative, and always catchy ways.

A.V. Club

Night Time, My Time succeeds in portraying her as a complex person who’s successfully discovered her own voice.

Pitchfork

It’s both a relief and a bit of a shock that Night Time, My Time is not only here, but that it’s one of the most pleasing pieces of pop-rock to come along this year.

Clash

Like the album’s heinous cover – Ferreira sullen and wide-eyed, showering naked, baring her breasts like a waxwork Helen of Troy – this is cheap theatrics masquerading as inspired art.

Californian singer and model Sky Ferreira's full-length debut leaves a lot to be desired outside of the album's handful of enjoyable pop songs.

Full of grungy, distorted noisy beats encapsulated with dark artistic synth-pop elements perfectly mixing glam rock aura on the debut body of work titled “Night Time, My Time” by the indie talented artist named Sky Ferreira. The edgy ultra hooks of the album will make you jive endlessly, the style is very unique to a typical pop song as she seems to find her magnificent sound and for blending two or more genres of her own choice with different vibes are so rare to be ... read more

One of the most interesting pop records I've ever listened to in my life. I liked these distorted beats very much, and the vocals themselves were somehow very unique and pretty for me. If the album had been finished a bit earlier my score would have been higher because the last songs didn't impress me as much as the ones at the beginning. Second half was just okay, maybe except 3 songs that were superb. Still, I think it's a great and unique pop album in terms of sound and style. I'm looking ... read more

Despite my rating, this album delivers nicely how creative pop can be without trying too hard, I mean, nowadays we are surrounded and almost forced to listen to the same formula every single day. Therefore, the release of an album (also a debut) as Night Time, My Time provides what I could say an interesting side of a genre already drowned by social media and.

Indeed, I think this album could have been done better in many ways, also could have been more cohesive and even in terms of vocals and ... read more

Mixing 90's grunge with 80's synthpop, Sky Ferreira's debut is a musical triumph for being vulnerable, yet moody and artistic, yet catchy.

Boys: Sky practically makes up a new genre: grunge wave. It perfectly opens up to the concept and sound of the album with it's noisy guitars and restrained synths.

Ain't Your Right: A chaotic track with disjointed beats and synths. The guitars add a bit of a push to the song, but after a while, it starts to sound like too much. ... read more

This is one of the best peices of pop-rock albums I've heard just ever. With her debut album Sky Ferreira already demonstrates herself as a genius she merges elements of synth-pop, grunge, pop-rock and noise pop into one of the most immersive and exciting set of pop bangers. This is the album I wish Avril Lavigne made. If her next album builds on this sound, it's honestly a guaranteed 10/10 from me.
