  1. 10.0 |   NME

    One of the smartest, subtlest young musicians around, and someone with plenty more tricks up her sleeve

  2. 8.3 |   Consequence Of Sound

    The viral DIY artist shows her talents extend well beyond her bedroom pop roots

  3. 8.2 |   Sputnik Music (staff)

    Immunity proves to be everything that people who’ve watched her ascent could hope for. She has set the stage to dominate her own slice of the forlorn indie-pop niche, alongside peers like Baker, Heynderickx, and Soccery Mommy

  4. 8.0 |   PopMatters

    It's an album which struggles to ask for assistance but never pretends to be entirely above it, either. If that isn't a universal human struggle, then what else is?

  5. 8.0 |   Slant Magazine

    The album is steeped in warm acoustics juxtaposed by austere observations about life and love

  6. 8.0 |   Q

    It's gorgeous, summery, dreamy pop. Print edition only

  7. 8.0 |   Pitchfork

    On her debut album, the young viral star moves beyond the lo-fi bedroom-pop of her early recordings and into a restrained, detailed style of songwriting all her own

  8. 7.3 |   Paste Magazine

    Immunity is a smoothly-produced pop record about queer relationships — there’s no discounting the value of these stories in the lives of queer people and the population at large

  9. 7.0 |   Rolling Stone

    Clairo has a playful melodic sense and a pretty soprano voice, with half-whispered edges, like someone for whom speaking up isn’t first nature. Her delivery balances pop earnestness with a matter-of-factnesss, verging on deadpan, that feels of the moment

  10. 7.0 |   The Music

    Clairo’s truly outdone herself – this album is exactly what fans needed while displaying the very best of her incredible talent

  11. 7.0 |   Exclaim

    Clairo's stylistic variability sets her apart from these artists however, and while some more time and resources wouldn't be unwelcome on a sophomore effort, Immunity confirms she's one to watch

  12. 7.0 |   Spectrum Culture

    Immunity is a mood-centric pop album that never sacrifices the fundamental unit of the song

  13. 6.5 |   Under The Radar

    A bit of gestation might have led to more experimentation and vivid colors in an album with a handful of standouts but also tracks that tend to bleed indistinguishably into each other

  14. 6.0 |   The Quietus

    It’s simultaneously a gratifying and frustrating listen
    Read Review

  15. 6.0 |   Northern Transmission

    Throughout the album’s running time we are treated to some interesting production and a plethora of good songs that do keep the spotlight firmly planted on the singer

  16. 6.0 |   The Observer

    A winning debut
    Read Review

  17. 5.0 |   Crack

    Lyrically, the record marks a newfound maturity, however timid production choices let many of the songs down
    Read Review

  18. 4.0 |   Uncut

    While there's plenty of laidback sheen, the collection is void of original hooks. Print edition only
