  1. 10.0 |   DIY

    It’s ambitious and uncompromising, as gutsy and self-assured as they come
    Read Review

  2. 8.0 |   NME

    Goat Girl have mixed this scrappy sound with the gothic ennui of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and the doomy experimentalism of Tom Waits

  3. 8.0 |   The FT

    Their debut album has a scrappy, vagrant energy, which flows in ebbs and swells of intensity through 19 tracks, many under two minutes long

  4. 8.0 |   Clash

    You leave curious but filthy, unsure whether you need a hot bath or a cold shower

  5. 8.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    At just 40 minutes in length it doesn't stick around long enough to incur tedium, and what's more, each of its consistent parts makes for an explosive whole that demands repeat listens

  6. 8.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    This is for the discontent, furious youth who are just trying to find their lot in life. Funny, raging, unpredictable and electric, this is a record that feels alive

    Read Review

  8. 8.0 |   Uncut

    Thrillingly perma-bored, sarcastic and suffused with the stench of inadequately ventilated student accommodation. Print edition only

  9. 8.0 |   Q

    It's fantastically alive, electrifying and witty stuff, the sound of something fresh and thrilling occurring. Print edition only

  10. 8.0 |   Mojo

    Goat Girl's vision is as unique as an oily fingerprint, their confidence dizzying, and richly justified. Print edition only

  11. 8.0 |   PopMatters

    For its chaos and often mismatched layers, Goat Girl is an album that shows a well-developed skill set, and how Goat Girl the band has more to it than initially meets the ear

  12. 7.5 |   Pitchfork

    The debut LP from this South London band is absurd, playful, and more than a little unsettling, sounding at times like a less romantic Libertines

  13. 7.0 |   No Ripcord

    In defying expectations, the band exceeds them
    Read Review

  14. 7.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    The lack of focus threatens to derail proceedings as the album lags a little in the middle, but Goat Girl sound as if they have the potential to be a band for the times; nit-picking, therefore, feels churlish

    Goat Girl are just beginning to tap into their potential on this exciting debut

  16. 6.9 |   Earbuddy

    Goat Girl’s wild style is a reflection of their south London peers such as Shame, Fat White Family, and Sorry. They play just as tough

  17. 6.0 |   music OMH

    Goat Girl is an all-female band whose gender isn’t something they make a big deal of; they might be an antidote to a male dominated indie rock scene, but they aren’t a deliberately gendered reaction to it

  18. 6.0 |   The Music

    19 incredible tracks to satisfy any hungry fan

  19. 5.0 |   Exclaim

    It's the quick interuptions of confusion, such as "A Swamp Dogs Tale," a minute-and-a-half long spoken-word track that ventures into grime territory, that this album could do without
