  1. 8.5 |   Paste Magazine

    Phantogram have discerned an acute way to emote in front of an increasingly large audience while also seeming like the coolest kids in the room. Voices is emotional, not emo

  2. 8.4 |   Sputnik Music (staff)

    A very well-written balance between depth and melody that sets them apart from many pop acts that are around today

  3. 8.0 |   The Irish Times

    Songs such as My Only Friend , Fall in Love and Howling at the Moon are rowdy, confident and compelling, making for an album which is a real treat

  4. 8.0 |   Spin

    While Voices begins with a punch, it ends with an appropriate whimper

  5. 7.5 |   Under The Radar

    Phantogram shows a marked improvement in song conceptualization with Voices. Less fat goes a long way for the kind of weight this duo brings to each track

  6. 7.5 |   Pretty Much Amazing

    Phantogram makes music for when the disco ball is still hanging, and the speakers are still blaring, but the dance floor has emptied out, and the confetti is swept away

  7. 7.5 |   A.V. Club

    A huge step forward for the band, one that smartly amplifies its atmospheric gifts through the lens of worthy songs

  8. 7.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    A solid rather than spectacular listen
    Read Review

  9. 7.0 |   All Music

    Filled with catchy, emotion-packed songs that will sound great booming out of radio speakers
    Read Review

  10. 7.0 |   The Music

    Voices has enough bite to leave a mark but isn’t as menacing as one might hope
    Read Review

  11. 6.7 |   Consequence Of Sound

    Barthel’s tone remains consistent despite the extreme, expanded register. Simply put, she owns it, one of the album’s few examples of the group trying something new, reaching just beyond themselves, and it sounds fantastic

  12. 6.0 |   Pitchfork

    This album ultimately underwhelms next to the pure-pop punch of Haim, the cutting lyricism of Lorde, or the radiant grandeur of Chvrches

  13. 6.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    Tracks pass by pleasantly enough but fail to make much of lasting impact nor distinguish themselves from the overall flow of the album

  14. 6.0 |   DIY

    ‘Voices’ is more than an uppercut of an album, it’s a finishing move. After this release, Phantogram should confidently be able to walk across the limp bodies of any doubters

  15. 5.0 |   No Ripcord

    With Voices, Phantogram have fallen off the path to glory
    Read Review

  16. 5.0 |   Slant Magazine

    Rarely has a chance to establish any momentum before getting tripped up by its own inconsistency
