  1. 8.5 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    Straddling eclectic unpredictability and hook-laden gleam, this effort sees the three-piece honing their sonic palette, as they have previously achieved with equal success in their oeuvre

  2. 8.0 |   The Music

    They strike the right balance between musical experimentation and a heap of quirky hooks to reel us in. Like so much great pop music, the jump and jive of this album defies dissection

  3. 7.5 |   Earbuddy

    Yeasayer almost turn me into a naysayer until Erotic Reruns second half

    A genuinely beguiling album

  5. 7.0 |   All Music

    A feel-good dance-rock album, even if it refuses to tune out of reality

  6. 7.0 |   Clash

    Whether any cuts in the collection has the popular pull of 2010 LP ‘Odd Blood’ – say, ‘Ambling Alp’ or ‘O.N.E.’ – is yet to be seen, but there’s undoubtedly groove enough here to fuel summer-long dancing vibes, regardless of the consistency British sunshine

  8. 6.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    Overall, Erotic Reruns is a pleasant and inoffensive listen, particularly to the uninitiated listener. Straying dramatically from the band’s previous efforts, however, it will no doubt prove divisive amongst Yeasayer faithfuls

    A slight and unwaveringly safe 30 minutes, Yeasayer’s latest goes down easier than anything the band has ever done, while making less of an impression

  10. 5.5 |   Under The Radar

    For the Yeasayer fans who enjoy their stranger stylings, this will fall out of rotation quicker than others; that doesn't make it bad, just not a favorite. Either way, we'll all be eagerly awaiting wherever they head next

  11. 4.0 |   Slant Magazine

    The album aims for an enthralling vision of infatuation, but the band’s message rings hollow

  12. 3.0 |   The 405

    Yeasayer are in the middle of an identity crisis. They want to share a psychedelic experience but seldom write anything someone older than fourteen would find strange
