  2. 8.0 |   Clash

    What makes the album successful is that the duo has clearly grown and played their strengths. No two songs are the same - each one brings something new and tells a melodramatic story to the album

  3. 8.0 |   Exclaim

    Honest, clever and lively, Diet Cig's second record is a great juxtaposition: working through embarrassment and shame all while bouncing off the walls to the sound of sugary, cheery indie-punk

  4. 8.0 |   All Music

    Do You Wonder About Me? is superior ear candy that won't hurt your intellectual teeth, and a more than worthy follow-up to 2017's fine Swear I'm Good At This

  5. 8.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    A vital record of universal emotions that makes the current global mantra of “we’re all in this together” feel just that bit more believable

  6. 7.0 |   Northern Transmission

    It is a more mature but never static or boring version of the band. One that has allowed some growth without sacrificing the special thing the pair brings to these songs

  10. 7.0 |   God Is In The TV

    Do You Wonder About Me? is more polished and meticulous, its enthusiasm subdued, or rather kept in check, by frequent introspective musing

  11. 7.0 |   Under The Radar

    Isn’t quite the front-to-back killer album Diet Cig feels capable of, but it is absolutely a step forward for the duo

  12. 7.0 |   music OMH

    With bags of potential, it’s an album that makes you excited to see what self-confessed “slop pop” exponents Diet Cig choose to do next

  13. 6.0 |   No Ripcord

    While there’s truthful feeling packed into satisfying bursts and some great songs, there’s nothing here that’s groundbreaking. For Diet Cig, that’s more than okay

  14. 5.9 |   Beats Per Minute

    Too diluted to be as addictive as intended

  15. 5.0 |   PopMatters

    Diet Cig's Do You Wonder About Me? shows that they're looking to move beyond the sound of their early 20s and into something a bit more serious
