  1. 8.0 |   The Guardian

    For all Stealing Sheep's maverick influences, it's the small details that stand out on this beguiling debut

  2. 8.0 |   Evening Standard

    Part Fleetwood Mac, part Bat For Lashes, but always their own, slightly weird, slightly skew-whiff, but unashamedly accessible women, Stealing Sheep are on their way
    Read Review

  3. 8.0 |   Independent on Sunday

    Their voices are great, which helps, but it's the unexpected instrumentation that really seals the deal
    Read Review

  4. 8.0 |   The Quietus

    There is a sense that Stealing Sheep are musicians first and foremost, as opposed to music geeks who formed a band to flesh out their dreams

  5. 8.0 |   The Irish Times

    A trio with wild imaginations, darling voices, kooky instrumentation, spooky harmonies, off-kilter hooks and songs that really want to get medieval on your ass

  6. 8.0 |   BBC

    Unashamedly folk-influenced, but much, much broader of palette. It’s their ear for detail that makes them so potentially special
    Read Review

  7. 8.0 |   music OMH

    Instantly lovable, managing to balance out catchy numbers with endlessly interesting songs
    Read Review

  8. 8.0 |   NME

    Strips the style of all Wicker Man cheese and stuffs it full of modern relevance
    Read Review

  9. 7.5 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    Demonstrating that they have the songwriting prowess to back up the fortuitous meeting of styles and instruments that brought them together, Stealing Sheep look to have a bright future ahead of them

  10. 7.0 |   God Is In The TV

    As these three girls skip down the road to either niche stardom or oblivion you do sense that only their second album will properly tell us where their destiny lies
    Read Review

  11. 7.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    There's a sort of kinetic magic when the three multi-instramentalist band members enter a room together
    Read Review

  12. 6.0 |   PopMatters

    Clearly not a record for curmudgeons or people with OCD. It’s colourful, chaotic, intoxicating, daft, pretty, odd, often enchanting but sometimes too saccharine sweet
    Read Review

  13. 6.0 |   The Skinny

    The weirdness intrigues and beguiles, but it's the hooks that keep bringing this listener back
    Read Review

  14. 6.0 |   Mojo

    Stealing Sheep join that weird and wonderful place inhabited by Warpaint, Bat For Lashes and The Raincoats. Print edition only

  15. 6.0 |   Q

    An utterly unique debut. Print edition only

  16. 6.0 |   Bowlegs

    There’s no doubt Stealing Sheep have made a good pop record, but it doesn’t feel like a game-changer, maybe that will come next. For now dig around in a suitably varied, inventive and often unique set

  17. 3.0 |   No Ripcord

    Into The Diamond Sun is somewhat equivalent to being pelted with macaroons; at first sweet, delicate, even impressively constructed, but soon proving not just boring, but intensely samey, sickly and unsatisfying
