Stereogum stated that Condon is “able to deliver the calling-card Beirut people want (romantic croon, party-in-the-streets horn swells) while seamlessly mixing in new ingredients that showcase a purer pop feel coupled with a mature sense of restraint, all without sacrificing the fun.” Sounds about right.
Grace Duffy, of Under the Gun Review, has continued the love expressing that “there’s a beautiful depth and sensitivity to all of the tracks on this record, as the songs flow effortlessly into one another to fill your speakers with a nebulous yet memorable grace.”
Take a look at the Dusted review as well in which Daniel Levin Becker examines that “whether you admire his engaged musical tourism or find it suspicious – and for my money, the argument that he’s cheating anybody by doing what he does is an idiotic one – you’d be hard pressed to deny that he’s got a great hook, something worth talking about either way.”
