  1. 9.0 |   PopMatters

    Thank Your Lucky Stars is melancholy beauty. It’s music for late nights, for falling adrift in slow dark waters and gazing numbly at the glowing moonlight
    Read Review

  2. 9.0 |   Gig Soup

    This deeper, darker record is the best thing they’ve done all year
    Read Review

  3. 8.5 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    It’s a very different sounding record to its predecessor and an equally rewarding one
    Read Review

  4. 8.3 |   A.V. Club

    The full sonic and emotional weight is tremendous
    Read Review

  5. 8.3 |   Consequence Of Sound

    The album’s best moments come later, with a handful of boundary-pushing, project-defining numbers that don’t sound like a different band, just sound like a better version of Beach House
    Read Review

  6. 8.1 |   Pitchfork

    Undeniably a Beach House album, a familiar mix of warm tones and chilly sentiments
    Read Review

  7. 8.0 |   Spin

    Beach House’s releases to date have come fogged by intoxicant, nostalgia, and hypoxia, but Thank Your Lucky Stars does what their work has begged for all along and wipes the dew from their rearview mirror
    Read Review

  8. 8.0 |   All Music

    Just as rewarding as Depression Cherry, and arguably more immediate
    Read Review

  9. 8.0 |   The Music

    It's a record that is already a worthy successor to and perhaps surpasses its parent album
    Read Review

  10. 8.0 |   Spectrum Culture

    Another instant Beach House classic
    Read Review

  11. 8.0 |   State

    Hits all the right notes, ensuring it is every bit as emotionally stirring as its predecessors; an unexpected treat
    Read Review

  12. 8.0 |   Mojo

    Don't miss Legrand's falsetto leaps in The Traveller - they're spellbinding. Print edition only

  13. 8.0 |   Uncut

    Less dream, more pop on the rapid fire follow up to Depression Cherry. Print edition only

  14. 7.5 |   Under The Radar

    Whereas Depression Cherry was filled with sound, dripping with synthy texture and surrounding the listener with guitar leads, Thank Your Lucky Stars is more open and spacious
    Read Review

  15. 7.0 |   Clash

    It's a damn fine record and manages to avoid treading exactly the same ground its older sister did
    Read Review

  16. 7.0 |   Rolling Stone

    A bright, lovely gift of an album
    Read Review

  17. 7.0 |   Earbuddy

    As a whole, this record it just doesn’t live up to the expectations I have for Beach House
    Read Review

  18. 6.7 |   Pretty Much Amazing

    Sometimes, I guess, there really is too much of a good thing
    Read Review

  19. 6.0 |   NOW

    Mood is the driving force, making it function best as background music, if occasionally forgettable
    Read Review

  20. 6.0 |   The Observer

    Woozy pop with elegant hooks
    Read Review

  21. 6.0 |   DIY

    It’s Beach House doing exactly what they want to do, not what outsiders might expect them to do
    Read Review

  22. 6.0 |   Exclaim

    Arriving so soon after Depression Cherry, it is bound to get lost in the shadow of its predecessor because frankly, it isn't nearly as compelling
