ADM rating[?]


UK Release date
US Release date
  1. 8.0 |   Exclaim

    An uncompromising record from an artist intent on mining further depths, one that finds the beauty in unease — and a sense of purpose in the darkness
    Read Review

  2. 8.0 |   PopMatters

    There's humanity skating across Deradoorian's Find the Sun, a collection of barely-touched ideas that allows listeners to float in place

  3. 8.0 |   Q

    The trajectory remains far-out, each track a space station on Deradoorian's exhilarating trip. Print edition only

  4. 8.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    Deradoorian’s starkly beautiful self-reflection is a pertinent fit for 2020

  5. 8.0 |   Clash

    There are not many solo artists who reflect their own personality in their music quite as honestly as Angel Deradoorian does, which is why this occasionally overblown mystical thesis can connect on such a personal, perhaps even spiritual, level

  6. 7.5 |   Beats Per Minute

    Writing fun songs is not easy, but fitting them into a mythos is even harder. Deradoorian and company handle the latter perfectly

  7. 7.5 |   Pitchfork

    Angel Deradoorian’s second LP is darker, less polished, and openly meditative. Even in its most psychedelic moments, the fuzzy aesthetic gives her music an earthy, grounded feel

  8. 7.5 |   Spectrum Culture

    Maintains a spirit of creative energy while crucially adding a sense of focus for an immediately rewarding experience
    Read Review

  9. 7.0 |   All Music

    Find the Sun is filled with insightful, poetic lyrics that reward attention, but the overall vibe of the album is best suited for a more meditative, perhaps semi-conscious state, allowing the sounds and rhythms to wash over you

  10. 7.0 |   Uncut

    A darkly urgent "Saturnine Night" and "The Illuminator" with its wood blocks and linear beat pattern set the tone, but as "Red Sky" with its meaty, psych-folk swing shows, it's not all out with the old. Print edition only

  11. 6.0 |   Mojo

    It doesn't work when she wails and chants her way through the closing Sun, but she's absolutely fearless, as rigorous as The Moody Blues circa Days Of Future Passed and as adventurous as Can circa Future Days. Print edition only
