A.V. Club
There’s nothing amateurish about their album, which is as thoughtful in its track order as it is in its composition.
Loud and Quiet
‘Pasar De Las Luces’ is never crushed by its influences, and in many moments feels like a fresh take on some familiar sounds.
The Skinny

Pasar de las Luces is over an hour in length, and while it is immersive and layered enough to justify a long run time, it still feels overlong. Nevertheless, it's a thoughtful and aurally beautiful album.

Mint Field's gloominess is very real and relatable, and their debut is a truly remarkable work of art.
The Line of Best Fit

If melancholy had a soundtrack, it would be Mint Field’s De Las Luces.

totally bland and forgetable.
Album too long but worth listening to for tracks such as Quiero Otono de Nuevo and Para Gali
some great moments, but too long for such a slow-moving album. some weak moments, but compensated by a kind of gloomy enthusiasm that washes over the sound.
This is an enjoyable trip into shoegaze music for what it can be; even though the lyrics are in Spanish there is a brooding, rhythmic tone to everything creating an environment where language barriers are not needed to appreciate this work. If you have ever enjoyed music in the shoegaze/dream pop realm, this is a must listen for the year. And even if you've never delved into that kind of soundscape, this is a great kind of introduction into what this music can make you experience.
