  1. 8.3 |   Consequence Of Sound

    Displays a remarkably singular vision and unparalleled confidence from the unlikely pop star

  2. 8.3 |   Pretty Much Amazing

    This is Ørsted at her most carefree: high BPM, easily accessible chorus, and Top 40 structures in place

  3. 8.0 |   Time Out

    MØ’s debut will leave you unable to pick a favourite track. Believe the hype: Karen Ørsted is something else

  4. 8.0 |   Independent on Sunday

    Enough wonk and weird, then, to distinguish Mø from other predictable dance-pop puppets. There must be something in those fjords…

  5. 8.0 |   State

    Mø has just the right amount of uniqueness and talent to see her stand out from the crowd

  6. 8.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    An exquisite collection of synthpop, dance and gushing, heartfelt emotions

  7. 8.0 |   The Guardian

    Mø lets her eclectic influences percolate at their own pace, and the slinky guitar lines of Maiden are a perfect example of how hypnotic she can be

  8. 8.0 |   DIY

    An album that wins out through sheer enthusiasm

  9. 8.0 |   The List

    Intelligent, danceable electropop is always welcome, and the bold, dreamy females of Scandinavia are currently providing some of the best

  10. 8.0 |   The Irish Times

    A strong debut that mixes edgy pop with electronica

  11. 8.0 |   music OMH

    A solid record, one that features a slightly older and more thoughtful MØ. It should make any fan of pop music look forward to what’s to come next from this gifted artis

  12. 8.0 |   No Ripcord

    MØ might have just released the freshest, most joyful pop record of 2014
    Read Review

  13. 8.0 |   Under The Radar

    The album may be a pop outing at its core, but its roots lay in electroclash, Motown, Balearic dance, and hip-hop

  14. 8.0 |   The Skinny

    With a velvety darkness beneath the sugar, NMTF is not a straightforward pop album by any measure
    Read Review

  15. 7.1 |   Pitchfork

    No Mythologies to Follow doesn't work because it assembles the right ingredients in the right amount—it works because a likable persona is something you just can't teach
    Read Review

  16. 7.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    It’s hard not to fall for multiple cuts from her wonderfully-produced debut album, which, for the most part, is a colourful clamour of earworming gem
    Read Review

  17. 7.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    Perhaps better taken as a really strong collection of singles (or potential singles) than a complete body of work, but that’s its only real weakness
    Read Review

  18. 7.0 |   The 405

    She has written twelve stunning pop songs and thrown them wildly onto an LP; filler would have no place here even if it were present
    Read Review

  19. 7.0 |   The Music

    A collection of songs that are very easy to listen to, yet edgy enough to stay interesting
    Read Review

  20. 7.0 |   Clash

    Impulsive, instinctive and infectious, the eccentric and emotional Ørsted walks an enchanting tightrope
    Read Review

  21. 7.0 |   Beardfood

    A lovely sunny day record
    Read Review

  22. 6.9 |   Paste Magazine

    MØ, more than the others, follows Del Rey’s lead across many songs, but still has crafted a fun (if not particularly inventive) romp that could warm the cold winters of her homeland
    Read Review

  23. 6.0 |   The FT

    Ørsted’s vocals are mellifluous, like a livelier Lana Del Rey, and her music, mid-tempo electropop with the odd haunting moment
    Read Review

  24. 6.0 |   The Observer

    What she lacks in originality, she makes up for with warlike ardour.
