    Read Review

  2. 9.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    It has the teeth, imagination and striking originality to take its place alongside the great British debuts
    Read Review

  3. 9.0 |   The Digital Fix

    These songs weave their way into your consciousness. They can plod, they can grab you by the throat, they can be full of sadness, they can be full of hope
    Read Review

  4. 9.0 |   PopMatters

    The highlights here feel less like individual songs than movements in a long composition
    Read Review

  5. 8.3 |   Pretty Much Amazing

    Ultimately this is a great debut
    Read Review

  6. 8.0 |   Mojo

    A characterful, noir synthesis of indie hip-hop and melodious jazz guitars. Print edition only

  7. 8.0 |   NME

    A debut that captures the atmosphere of contemporary London in all its bleak and lonely glory
    Read Review

  8. 8.0 |   Q

    Suggests a new king for both club kids and guitar vets has (finally) arisen. Print edition only

  9. 8.0 |   The 405

    He's an impossibly mature writer, though with a tendency to slip into verboseness and slightly anachronistic lyrics

  10. 8.0 |   musicOMH

    A special album, from a special artist
    Read Review

  11. 8.0 |   FasterLouder

    This is a marvellous debut and a perfect fit for those desolate late nights
    Read Review

  12. 8.0 |   The Fly

    An invigorating, assertive and magical collection that’s probably cleverer than you are
    Read Review

  13. 8.0 |   The Observer

    This strange and beguiling album is more about texture and space than traditional songcraft
    Read Review

  14. 8.0 |   No Ripcord

    A debut that’s masterfully crafted, reasonably ambitious, and, more importantly, exists as a truly unique statement
    Read Review

  15. 8.0 |   Clash

    Under immense expectation, he has managed to become the product of his far-flung influences, rather than a pastiche of any
    Read Review

  16. 8.0 |   All Music

    One of the most vital debuts of the year
    Read Review

  17. 7.3 |   Pitchfork

    Marshall still has a blood-freezing voice, someone to pay attention to, but 6 Feet Beneath the Moon doesn't feel like his Big Statement, not yet
    Read Review

  18. 7.0 |   Spin

    This is often messy business, and it ain't always pleasant, but there's no denying the force of the vision here
    Read Review

  19. 7.0 |   Rolling Stone

    Pleasantly out of focus, dangling his drowsily exaggerated Cockney accent over ice-flow hip-hop beats striped with sad-lounge pianos and watery guitars
    Read Review

  20. 7.0 |   DIY

    He's shown himself as an interesting, watchable case and someone you still can't really gauge. And that was the only kind of album King Krule was ever going to put out
    Read Review

  21. 7.0 |   Consequence Of Sound

    One of the more exciting UK debuts in years
    Read Review

  22. 6.5 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    Just as Archy Marshall the boy is becoming a man, King Krule the bedroom musician is becoming an artist
    Read Review

  23. 6.0 |   The Guardian

    It's a good album, but somewhere in Archy is a remarkable one
    Read Review

  24. 5.0 |   Slant Magazine

    Feels incomplete and rushed, with Marshall cramming as many of his ideas as he can into a single album
    Read Review

  25. 3.0 |   The Quietus

    Hidden behind a smoky wall of xx-nabbed aesthetics and an almost unlistenably irritating voice, King Krule doesn't really know why he's doing what he's doing
    Read Review

  26. 3.0 |   God Is In The TV

    This seems like contrived lo-fi, a half-baked demo rather than a fully realised idea
