  2. 8.2 |   Earbuddy

    You'll eat up Alex Cameron's new album like an oyster...assuming you like oysters
    Read Review

  3. 8.0 |   Uncut

    These are tender anthems, even if some won't be readily singing lines like "eating your ass like an oyster" in a festival field. Print edition only

  4. 8.0 |   Paste Magazine

    On Alex Cameron's third record, we're introduced to a character we've yet to meet: himself

  5. 8.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    Mixes Cameron’s obligatory sex gags with more of his personal life than ever before, at times threatening to unveil who he really is these days
    Read Review

  6. 8.0 |   Under The Radar

    This is Cameron's first album fully recorded in America, and as such he utilizes a range of sounds and genres reflecting that such as the brilliant "Bad For the Boys," a bar-rock exposition on various awful men

  7. 8.0 |   Exclaim

    Cameron reports from society's deplorable underbelly with compassion, or at the very least understanding. An exciting and unique voice

  8. 8.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

  11. 8.0 |   No Ripcord

    Alex is truly in love, and the record is one of the best of the year

  12. 7.0 |   All Music

    It can be difficult to digest the combination of super-catchy pop hooks and shocking or gross lyrics on Miami Memory, but both are essential for the complex, cynical fiction Cameron has been building on all his albums. This one is the best produced, most catchy, and most vulgar of his catalog up until this point

  13. 6.8 |   Gig Soup

    Alex Cameron’s third effort is by some lengths his biggest departure. His songs still largely mock a certain type of man: the mistakes and results of toxic masculinity shadow the songs. This time, the inescapable overriding theme of ‘sure, he can have fun but he is - more importantly - in love’, is a welcome addition

  14. 6.0 |   Pitchfork

    On his third album, the smooth Australian rocker leaves behind the arch character studies and tries to craft something more personal and sincere

  15. 6.0 |   Q

    He's at his best when he tones down the act. Print edition only

  16. 6.0 |   NME

    The archly comic musician, who has formerly adopted toxic fictional personas, dials down the irony for a semi-sincere album that feels tonally awkward
