  1. 9.0 |   Mixmag

    It all closes with ‘Gravity’, arguably their classiest ballad since breakthrough hit ‘Ritual Union’. In short: this one’s highly recommended

  2. 8.0 |   Mojo

    Clever and cool, Season High is a career high. Print edition only

  3. 8.0 |   NME

    This is an album that delivers both mood and melody, thanks in no small part to Nagano

  4. 8.0 |   The Skinny

    For all Season High’s exuberance, the record never pitches too hard. Little Dragon sense when to turn it down just as well as they know when to ramp it up
    Read Review

  5. 8.0 |   The Irish Times

    A rare pop album with all of its ingredients measured in just the right portions
    Read Review

  6. 8.0 |   Under The Radar

    With an evolved new collection of tracks that are both hot and smart, Little Dragon has set themselves further apart
    Read Review

  7. 7.0 |   God Is In The TV

    New album Season High follows enough of the Gothenburg act’s own rules to resemble a Little Dragon piece of art

  8. 7.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    Little Dragon usher in summer with the hypnotic dance-pop of Season High
    Read Review

  9. 6.7 |   A.V. Club

    Like every Little Dragon album, Season High contains several new entries into the band’s essential catalog, but as a whole, it fails to fulfill its potential

  10. 6.1 |   Earbuddy

    Season High will get you high on love and funky dance pop no matter what Little Dragon says

  11. 6.0 |   The Music

    In its best moments the band members sound like children in a music shop

  12. 6.0 |   The Guardian

    Competent experimental pop
    Read Review

  13. 6.0 |   Clash

    Continuing their track record of sensory electropop that teeters on the edge of commercial viability, whilst preserving their unconventional charm
    Read Review

  14. 6.0 |   Crack

    The broad palette of styles and influences it represents come together in a colourful soundtrack to escape the bleak standards against which each day of 2017 has been judged
    Read Review

  15. 6.0 |   The FT

    The band set their stall out with a retro-electropop with big 1980s beats and Prince-style guitar-shredding
    Read Review

  16. 6.0 |   The Observer

    Having seemed on the verge of a breakthrough for so long, Sweden’s eccentric electronic four-piece finally indulge in pure musical pleasure

  17. 6.0 |   Q

    When they hit the sweet spot the results are sublime. Print edition only

  18. 6.0 |   The Independent

    Their minimalist aesthetic can sometimes work against them, as on the spartan, diffident “The Pop Life”, but it’s tempered by a winning romanticism on “Butterflies”
    Read Review

  19. 5.6 |   Pitchfork

    Despite the best efforts of Yukimi Nagano's dynamic voice, the Swedish band's fifth album of cautiously controlled, luxury mood music remains flat on the page.

  20. 5.0 |   Consequence Of Sound

    A fluid and enjoyable record that, unfortunately, leaves no lasting impression
    Read Review

  21. 5.0 |   No Ripcord

    While Season High has its showstopping moments, as a whole it tries to cram in too many ideas into a variety of disjointed themes
    Read Review

  22. 5.0 |   Spectrum Culture

    Each step forward is matched with baffling choices that threaten to derail the entire project
