"Kevin Barnes is back to experimenting. But this time around he drapes the weirdness in a layer of danceable grooves." - PopMatters

"These are songs that drive towards a singular vision-mistrust of the framework through which many of us are forced to view our lives and culture and the awakening that this mistrust leads to. Barnes has a once again solid outing under the of Montreal moniker on an album that is as quirky as it is seamless." - Under The Radar

"The album's intricate electro-funk arrangements find Barnes operating within his wheelhouse, with the twist here being that there are only six tracks, all of them with lengthy runtimes and structures that resemble suites rather than traditional pop songs. " - Exclaim!

Pitchfork included it in 7 Albums Out Today You Should Listen to Now. Head over to TIDAL to see hear a What Are You Listening To? 13 song playlist curated by Kevin featuring tracks from the likes of Pylon to ABBA.
