  1. 9.1 |   A.V. Club

    Will almost surely attract comparisons to another recent R&B album with its own amiable internal logic, Frank Ocean’s Channel Orange, and not unfairly, given that both are uniformly excellent

  2. 9.0 |   Spin

    Kaleidoscope Dream is startling and invigorating, a fully formed statement from an artist hungrily surging toward the front of pop music's creative pack

  3. 9.0 |   All Music

    No song is without an attractive quality, whether it's a heavenly melody, a riveting rhythm, or a boggling production nuance. The set is cunningly sequenced, too

  4. 8.4 |   Pitchfork

    It's respectful of tradition, quietly ambitious, and deeply personal, a wonderfully considered album

  5. 8.0 |   The Guardian

    Genuinely thoughtful songwriting
    Read Review

  6. 8.0 |   Pop Matters

    A thrilling listen that draws comparisons to D’Angelo’s Voodoo or Erykah Badu’s New Amerykah Part One on first listen

  7. 8.0 |   BBC

    Enjoy Kaleidoscope Dream for the rarity that it is: an unerringly consistent, very good pop record

  8. 8.0 |   The Irish Times

    Rich, substantial, adventurous and colourful, the work of an artist prepared to take chances by not doing what’s expected of him
    Read Review

  9. 8.0 |   Q

    Offers some fresh options for mainstream urban pop. Print edition only

  10. 8.0 |   Consequence Of Sound

    Vocal prowess and pop sensibility bring him right to the same winner’s podium as Frank Ocean and The Weeknd

  11. 7.5 |   Under The Radar

    There's an upfront quality to his words that tiptoes the line between sexy and silly, raunchy and ridiculous

  12. 7.0 |   Rolling Stone

    Miguel proves that he is, easily, uninhibited enough to inherit the tradition of eccentric R&B freakiness handed down from Marvin Gaye to Prince to R. Kelly

  13. 7.0 |   The Quietus

    The range of sonic ideas, fully realized songs, and prodigious vocal talent on Kaleidoscope Dream arrives as the most pleasant of shocks
