  1. 80
    Cacophonous, chaitic, and a lot of fun. [Apr 2010, p.83]
  2. Coconut, then, is a baffling, dirty, even exhausting listen at times, but never less than engaging throughout.
  3. Their personality is bold throughout, an excess of top-shelf distortion and a cast-the-crutches-aside sense of euphoria.
  4. 74
    On Coconut, the group softens the sharp edges and buffers the beats; the end result is like going from high contrast black-and-white to eye-popping Technicolor.
  5. Coconut seems to be a "transition album": A sometimes-exhilarating, sometimes-WTF layover between a possibly played-out formula and exciting new sounds on the horizon.
  6. 60
    The Wiltshire-raised, London-based trio respons with an album that feels utterly vital, but--show no desire to climb out of their own particular furrow. [Apr 2010, p.95]
  7. If the English art-school psychedelic trio had been able to keep up that momentum, their third album would be a solid one. Instead, they stumble and disappoint.
