  1. 8.0 |   Exclaim

    A stellar album that serves as a portrait of the artist as a not-quite-so-young man who's still finding weird new ways to pose age-old questions

  2. 8.0 |   The Skinny

    Keys and pianos prove especially important as seen on John Lennon-esque finale The Barely Blur making WHY?'s latest a dreamier affair, easy and pleasurable enough to get lost in
    Read Review

  3. 8.0 |   All Music

    The project remains a creative burst of sounds, grooves, and stylized observation that's uniquely refreshing to those open to its quirky complexity

  4. 8.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    It’s a thought-out piece of work; a collection of collaborating and competing daubs of colour across a blank canvas; a flock of sounds moving together as one, for one simple reason alone: to bring you joy

  5. 8.0 |   PopMatters

    Everything feels effortless, and consequently more self-assured. This is not an artist probing some existentialist crisis, but an artist who has reconciled mortality with the act of living and getting on with it

  6. 7.8 |   Earbuddy

    Yoni Wolf downplays his penchant for relating gross personal details in favor of more focused poetic expression
    Read Review

  7. 7.7 |   Pitchfork

    Yoni Wolf's prog-rap project is rejuvenated, and Moh Lhean is a bracing, clear-eyed album that still sounds uniquely like WHY?

  8. 7.5 |   The 405

    Moh Lhean sounds just as complete as any other WHY? record. This album is the mark of a man who knows where he is in life

  9. 7.5 |   The Quietus

    The whole thing is sonically gorgeous. Rarely does this kind of imaginative, lushly arranged art-pop exist anymore

  10. 7.0 |   Under The Radar

    For not being as sly or humorous as his past work, Moh Lhean recalls the confident one-two punch of Alopecia and Eskimo Snow

  11. 7.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    Why?'s fifth record seems more of a sure-footing; a reminder that this band that at one point was so exciting, is still able to surprise and move you even a decade on from their crowning achievement

  12. 6.0 |   DIY

    It mostly moves to the beat of its own
    Read Review

  13. 6.0 |   Mojo

    Wolf's vision remains undimmed. Print edition only
