  1. 8.0 |   Mojo

    There's a thrilling carnival atmosphere to Star Of Love. Print edition only

  2. 8.0 |   Q

    Genuinely moving. Print edition only

  3. 7.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    Like many a début, it could have been more, but regardless of this Star of Love is an auspicious start

    An assured, sporadically thrilling first shot
    Read Review

  5. 7.0 |   The Fly

    A record that’s as high energy and delightfully messy as their now notorious live performances

    It's pretty damn catchy stuff

  7. 6.0 |   God Is In The TV

    On the one hand you have to admire the way they weave such a myriad of styles together, yet on the other hand they sound almost dated

  8. 6.0 |   music OMH

    What Crystal Fighters are trying to do is interesting, but the end result is an album confused by what it is trying to achieve

  9. 5.0 |   NME

    With Delorean doing the same thing right now so much better, favouring Crystal Fighters would be like being handed an LCD Soundsystem record and chucking it to listen to Hadouken!

  10. 5.0 |   Rave Magazine

    If Crystal Fighters just laid off the synths and the banging beats a bit, they could produce something really memorable

  11. 4.0 |   The Guardian

    Crikey do they sound naff at times

  12. 4.0 |   The Skinny
