    A lot of the songs are solid hits in the making.
  2. 80
    An intoxicating brand of synth-pop that's slicker than a Gordon Gekko coif.
  3. 70
    Mostly: total bliss session.

    They are a band who want to form a real lasting connection. Diver only sporadically does this, but this is still an album that shows vast promise.

    Diver completes Lemonade's transformation from jerky, banger makers into wistful, all-encompassing pop sophisticates. That it was done so flawlessly makes it such a triumph on their part.

    True to its titular subject, Diver constitutes a daring leap for Lemonade, one that, at times, appears destined to result in a belly-flop, but recovers nicely in the end.

    Big grooves, smart beats, it's all technically on-point, but it lacks an original pace or narrative-pretty much neutering any melody or songcraft from the get-go.
