I’m reluctant to write a review now as I’m sure this album will grow on me more than it has now, as his is usually the case with anything I’m highly anticipating. For sure it is better than their last album, which I did not care for, but it’s certainly no mind over matter. I still listen to that album beginning to end to this day!
I think people are missing the mark. This is by far one of the best albums of the year. The concept is reflective and real. It is comforting and authentic. The melodies and messages get stuck in your head in all the right ways.
Start listening differently. This album is so necessary and applicable.
Just a B-
Its just OK....Every album to date has been fantastic...this album has a couple of good tunes, but nothing special.
Couple good tracks
Going in I consider myself a casual fan of Young the Giant. I’ve never liked a full album of theirs, but definitely a decent amount of songs of all their albums. This one one is the same situation. I like about 5 songs. Which is totally fine with me.
Always love what these guys release!
I’ve been following YtG for a long time, and I love to see how their sound evolves on each album. There is some really great stuff going on with this album. Panoramic Girl is a must listen to track.

If I could give this album a higher review I most certainly would. This is my go to feel-good music and I’ve already listened to this album 6 times in the past 2 days. Fantastic!
I’ve loved YtG forever and they never disappoint me! Tightrope and Mirror Master are my jams!
Their last album had some absolute bangers, but Mirror Master is a complete snooze. Every song sounds like a generic mish-mash of basic melodies and chords we have heard thousands of times before from every “alternative” act in the last decade. Possibly one of the most disappointing albums of the year considering that their previous album suggested that Young the Giant had finally found their artistic footing with some incredibly catchy hooks, a distinctive sound, and a playful confidence that is sorely missing on this record. I pray that Young the Giant spend more time perfecting their sound, because they really were onto something with their last album, and now they are taking a huge step backwards.
Older stuff is better.
