    CMAT is a new pop voice to be cherished, to which this album provides a beautiful introduction

  2. 10.0 |   Dork

    A uniquely brilliant window into a world spinning on its own gloriously wonky axis. The country-pop label that it may attract is a false flag – a suggestion that this is a record that sits alongside other far less idiosyncratic peers

  3. 9.0 |   Sputnik Music (staff)

    On her near-perfect debut, CMAT proves she's a pop tour de force who knows exactly who she wants to be and has all the talent to deliver it

  9. 8.0 |   XS Noize

    The album as a whole is enjoyable from start to finish stacked with, dare I say, potential sync placements

  10. 7.0 |   Under The Radar

    If you fancy a dose of escapist country-tinged pop with lyrics that range from witty, insightful, self-deprecating to plain daft, then CMAT is certainly your gal
