  1. 7.0 |   The Music

    Despite having a constant overarching sound, there's enough variety and range across the album to keep it interesting

  2. 6.0 |   NME

    A bit samey – but there’s plenty to please fans
    Read Review

  3. 6.0 |   All Music

    Evolve feels very much like the digital Zeitgeist of 2017: good intentions aside, its bold, colorful textures elbow aside any notions of introspection or reflection

  4. 6.0 |   The Irish Times

    It’s easy to see why Imagine Dragons have been so successful to date. Whether this kind of glossy grandiosity has longevity is an entirely different matter

  5. 5.0 |   musicOMH

    Evolve is a good idea, but in practise it turns out that it doesn’t really work

  6. 4.0 |   State

    ‘Thunder’ reveals the strengths and flaws of the songwriting: on one hand we have excellent production, big beats and confidence in abundance and on the other a perfunctory lyrical idea of ‘look at me I’ve achieved my dream’

  7. 4.0 |   The FT

    Singer Dan Reynolds indulges his fantasies of suffering and reward amid catchy but bombastic music

  8. 4.0 |   The Independent

    Involves mostly devolving back into the hoariest of tired rock cliches, and plodding grimly towards the summer’s festivals

  9. 4.0 |   The Guardian

    Lifeless electronic-tinged arena rock
    Read Review

  10. 4.0 |   Rolling Stone

    Redeeming moments come via Alex Da Kid, producer of the Dragons' mega-hit "Radioactive." See "Yesterday," a sulk-fest whose boozy stomp and goofy guitar solo actually sound like a band having fun, rather than stoic engineers of content delivery systems

  11. 2.0 |   Earbuddy

    The band’s latest inescapable album. Like a misogynist that doesn’t understand the meaning of no, it forces itself on us at every turn
