UK Release date
US Release date
  1. 8.0 |   Uncut

    More than another recombination of Krautrock and Warp Record Reference points. Print edition only

  2. 8.0 |   Exclaim

    Felt reaches out and pulls you in. It may even make you dance. It may even get you singing along. It will not, however, care if you like it or not

  3. 8.0 |   Earbuddy

    The fact that these moving pieces hang together so well is at times remarkable

  4. 8.0 |   PopMatters

    Vocoder flourishes, occasional saxophone solos and all, Felt is still possibly the most candid album Suuns have made, showing even a little vulnerability in the glimpses it gives into their methods
