    Read Review

  2. 8.5 |   The Quietus

    This is music that simultaneously celebrates and explores, that takes pop as its foundation and then builds a multi-layered space on it that welcomes one and all

  3. 8.4 |   Gig Soup

    A unique, idiosyncratic sound that’s marked by a myriad magic moments
    Read Review

  4. 8.0 |   PopMatters

    Weaver's confidence is well-earned and it is a satisfying spectacle that a rather underappreciated artist should find her moment nearly 25 years into her career

  5. 8.0 |   The Irish Times

    Brilliantly steers a course through Krautrock, femme punk, synth-driven new wave, Euro-prog and psych-pop
    Read Review

  6. 8.0 |   Q

    A radiant blast of cosmic rock and intergalactic electro-pop that sounds as next-level as the voice of the spaceship, the brain in the jar, a full-force astral projection. Print edition only

  7. 8.0 |   Mojo

    Every bit as good as its predecessor
    Read Review

  8. 8.0 |   Uncut

    Weaver grounds all this analogue fizz and crackle in strong songwriting, erecting a razzle-dazzle wall of sonic scaffolding around richly referential lyrics and lysergic pastoral harmonies. Print edition only

  9. 8.0 |   The Independent

    Her most completely realised album yet, albeit by dispensing with folk music almost entirely, in favour of more forceful Krautrock and psychedelic influences
    Read Review

  10. 8.0 |   The Guardian

    Music that sounds like it’s transmitted from the outer limits in sharp, concentrated, accessible doses. All the unearthly power, none of the excess

  11. 8.0 |   All Music

    Not only do these tracks serve to add an extra bit of dynamic tension to the album, they also point to more exploratory avenues Weaver could attempt in the future now that she's mastered synth-heavy dream pop

  12. 8.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    When the stars align on moments such as this, it’s a journey that justifies the cosmic ambitions, and Weaver’s best record yet

  13. 6.0 |   The Arts Desk

    ‘Modern Kosmology’s’ emphasis is more on atmosphere and rhythmic insistence than melody
