  1. 9.0 |   music OMH

    A brave but captivating debut album, exploring the inner parts of the mind

  2. 9.0 |   The Quietus

    The Keychain Selection deserves special treatment because, in its field, it's somewhat of a zenith

  3. 8.0 |   hhv.de mag

    Where on other Brownswood releases one would look for the acid and soul quotes between the lines of electronic beats, Ozanne reduces those aspects to mere fragments of jazz

  4. 8.0 |   The Fly

    It’s sentimental in places, but it also marks the 24-year-old out as one of the most exciting new producers around

  5. 8.0 |   BBC

    A classic debut set to soundtrack the perfect comedown

  6. 8.0 |   Mojo

    Downtempo it mmay be, but joyous rather than dark. Print edition only

  7. 7.0 |   Clash

    Piano-centred post-dubstep, for those who are reduced to sighing as means of showing emotion

  8. 7.0 |   The 405

    Gang Colours makes music with sentimental value. Each song carves a story. A story of untold experiences. A Dictaphone recording of worldy soundbites. A keychain of holiday contentment

  9. 7.0 |   Pitchfork

    Smart, clever coffee-shop fare, with enough substance and and detail to stand on its own two feet
    Read Review

  10. 6.8 |   Beats Per Minute

    There’s nothing bad about it – at all – but considering how much work seems to have gone into it, it should feel that bit more captivating

  11. 6.0 |   Q

    Isn't far removed from James Blak,e but the melodies are all his own. Print edition only

  12. 6.0 |   The Irish Times

    Reels you in with subtle details, beautifully crafted soundscapes, wisps of unexpected textures (Ozanne knows his classical onions) and a vocal that hits emotional high points in a similar fashion to James Blake

  13. 3.5 |   Bowlegs

    The control of all the synths is really nice, and everybody likes a few random piano chords, but this album, without a microscopic dig for substance, just fails to emit any feelings of originality
