  1. 8.1 |   Pitchfork

    Going so outright "pop" is one of the gutsiest, risky things a pillar of the scene like Scuba could have done. Thankfully, his Midas touch extends to this stuff as well

  2. 8.0 |   AU Magazine

    Scuba productions always ooze class, no matter the genre

  3. 8.0 |   Clash

    Bound skillfully by the starry-eyed aestheticism he’s become so fond of lately

  4. 8.0 |   Uncut

    One of the most enjoyable dance albums in recent memory. Print edition only

  5. 8.0 |   Spin

    A coming of age. Producer emerges from sugary trance cocoon with saucy, sparkling techno/house/UK bass

  6. 8.0 |   Mojo

    Looking for a snapshot of the music driving Europe's cooler clubs? Then look here. Print edition only

  14. 6.0 |   The Irish Times

    An album with many signals to possible future adventures

  15. 6.0 |   Sputnik Music (staff)

    It’s an important album for Scuba, as a means of transition, of mastering his new craft. It’s just not a terribly important album for the rest of us

  16. 5.0 |   Pop Matters
