  4. 8.0 |   God Is In The TV

    Real High is a classic love album but with a very modern twist. Nite Jewel presents slick, sleek music. She is glacial in her candour

  8. 7.0 |   Spectrum Culture

    Ramona Gonzalez seems to have two main loves: pop-inflected R&B music and quirky synth sounds

  9. 6.9 |   Earbuddy

    Gonzalez gives her songs a sultry, R&B pop backdrop. None of them are bangers. Most of the album is very down-tempo, sometimes minimal and reminiscent of Jessy Lanza’s work

    On her latest album, Nite Jewel balances honeyed, introspective bedroom pop with luminous 90s R&B

  11. 6.0 |   PopMatters

    Further refining her sound and losing the murk that made her previous releases blog favorites, Real High finds Nite Jewel’s Ramona Gonzalez easing just that much closer to the mainstream
