UK Release date
US Release date
  1. 9.0 |   Exclaim

    Weather pushes the boundaries of Tycho's traditional sound, and in so doing, proves there is something serious to be said about stepping outside the comfort zone

  2. 8.0 |   Northern Transmission

    As a whole it creates such a lovely dynamic, more so then when listening to it piecemeal

  3. 8.0 |   The Skinny

    At just eight low-stress tracks, this isn't so much a headlong dash for horizons new as it is a gentle evolution, but you could do far worse than kick back and enjoy the weather

  9. 6.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    Has moments of brilliance hidden between collaborative misfires

  10. 6.0 |   Spectrum Culture

    Tycho’s Weather doesn’t reach the atmospheric heights of his post-chillwave classics
