    One of the most thoughtful and artistic psych albums in years
    Read Review

  2. 8.5 |   AU Review

    This album is the most varied in regards to instrumentation. Lyrically, it’s the most confrontational

  3. 8.0 |   Uncut

    Finds them anchoring their sillier musical excesses with solid pop tunes and heartfelt existential concerns. Print edition only

  4. 8.0 |   Mojo

    Wildly imaginative music. Print edition only

  5. 8.0 |   The Music

    It's a fine example of a new twinkling, retro-futuristic vision
    Read Review

  6. 8.0 |   The Skinny

    The Weather is Pond at their most daring – and most sardonic
    Read Review

  7. 8.0 |   Exclaim

    Even after seven albums, the fun and excitement is still there, albeit in a new and changing way
    Read Review

  8. 8.0 |   The Guardian

    Accessible but still absolutely out there, this is prog, but not as we know it
    Read Review

  9. 8.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    An album inspired by dissatisfaction, full of truly curated songs that aren't all that serious about the scary stuff. So, both of our time, and out of it
    Read Review

  10. 8.0 |   God Is In The TV

    Although The Weather reflects on universal issues, it is first and foremost concerned with the horrid state of its own surroundings in Australia

  11. 8.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    Rarely have they sounded so good
    Read Review

  12. 8.0 |   Q

    Filled with brilliantly wonky melodies, The Weather is a sonic hall-of-mirrors. Print edition only

  13. 8.0 |   DIY

    No matter how slick POND get, there’ll always be a part of them that’s a little bit bonkers
    Read Review

  14. 7.7 |   Pitchfork

    Mixes bright synths, campy detours, and grim lyrics
    Read Review

  15. 7.5 |   Pretty Much Amazing

    Remove the undeniable blockbusters and The Weather is a little thin, but the sheer irresistibility of those peaks is more than enough to power it over the finish line
    Read Review

  16. 7.0 |   Under The Radar

    The Australian psychedelic scene may be a touch crowded right now, but for those bored by the more conventional charms of, say, Cut Copy, POND is your next step
    Read Review

  17. 6.9 |   Gig Soup

    A notable entry to Pond’s fast-growing and highly accessible discography. Put this record on when you’re out in the sun for optimum enjoyment

  18. 6.1 |   Earbuddy

    Ariel Pink meets Tame Impala...surprised we never made this connection about Pond before
    Read Review

  19. 6.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    The album fully realises its panic and frustration on ‘3000 Megatons’, a lighter-wielding call for the apocalypse with a climax that’s swallowed whole by bass and reverb
