CRITIC REVIEWS

80
AllMusic

In minor contrast to the band's previous effort, the moments of pared-down instrumentation here seem to offer a necessary respite from the intensity, providing necessary moments of calm as we anticipate the next joyous sonic wave.

The Line of Best Fit

In Rolling Waves is a weightless collection of diverse possibilities that convey the spirit of life through songs that breathe with fresh but experienced lungs.

The 405

For others willing to explore and be led on tangents, this will be a perfect record to be absorbed by. There's a great many treasures to discover by just sitting and listening.

A.V. Club

In Rolling Waves requires a bit more patience on the whole. That’s actually a good sign; the band doesn’t seem to feel beholden to making a breakthrough—and In Rolling Waves may provide it regardless.

Although the band’s second record is an impressive return – one with a great deal of ambition – it does lack focus at times. The potential is clearly there; The Naked And Famous just need to trim away some of the fat.

NME

The result of rock band power-move (moving to LA) and life experience (a broken relationship), it’s a self-important album, but an accomplished one.

Somewhat better than their debut.

I little disappointing lyrically and vocals are weaker than the debut from this group. The same build ups can be heard from song to song.
