  1. 9.1 |   A.V. Club

    Twin Shadow manages to stand out in a cluttered genre thanks to world-beating, danceable hooks and a surfeit of style

  2. 9.0 |   FasterLouder

    Forget is one of those records where the more you listen, the more you find – and in the soulless digital age of iTunes and single–track downloads, that's something truly rare indeed

  3. 9.0 |   PopMatters

    A near-flawless album and certainly one of the most impressive debuts we’ve ever seen

    A magnificently accomplished debut

  5. 8.5 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    George Lewis Jr. might not dress or act like a novelist or a poet, but he’s as emotionally in-tune as the best of them

  6. 8.4 |   Pitchfork

    For its impressive sonic sheen, the album's skillful restraint makes it sound better with every spin

  7. 8.4 |   Beats Per Minute

    With so many obvious influences in the mix, it’s an impressive feat that none of Forget’s eleven tracks come across as derivative

  8. 8.0 |   Mojo

    Did someone say, "New Peter Gabriel"? Print edition only

  9. 8.0 |   Bowlegs

    The record will probably wash over you without too much force, but it will be a refreshing, if slightly familiar, feeling that you will want to experience again and again

  10. 8.0 |   music OMH

    Forget is an album that will require repeated listens to grow on most listeners, but fans of the 4AD stable might just get it instantly

  11. 8.0 |   The Skinny

    Forget might possess hints of yesteryear, but it never surrenders its steady sense of self

  12. 8.0 |   NME

  14. 8.0 |   Clash

  15. 8.0 |   Blurt

    Forget is one of the true surprises of 2010 that will hopefully be merely the tip of the iceberg for this most promising sonic auteur of the new new wave

    The lo-fi Prince has surely arrived

  17. 8.0 |   Uncut

  18. 7.0 |   AU Review

    For a man with a self-confessed mission to make big, irresistible pop music to be heard beyond the indie ghetto, he’s made impressively assured first step

  19. 7.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    Yes, it reeks of nostalgia but still, it manages to sound fresh enough to be forgiven
    Read Review

  20. 7.0 |   Under The Radar

  21. 6.0 |   Rave Magazine

    If you’re a little burned out on ‘80s nostalgia, this may not be the album to bring you back, but it’s intriguing all the same
    Read Review

  22. 6.0 |   The Irish Times

    A smart multi-instrumentalist with a distinct flair for new-wave pop airs and graces, last spotted in full flourish during the 1980s. Aided by the subtle laid-back production gear-changing of Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor
