    It’s a masterclass in formal brilliance meeting dogged idiosyncrasy on equal footing.

    This could be the biggest revelation of the lot. It simply does not get any better than Love.

    Love is a lush, romantic, folk-driven collection that moves away from his earlier, more psychedelic work.

    Despite the dubious company he keeps, McMahon's ambient folk pop remains beguiling. [May 2014, p.70]

    As long as McMahon is singing, Amen Dunes will never sound quite like anyone else--and on Love, he sings better and more ambitiously than ever.
  6. 75
    McMahon’s a constantly improving songwriter, and with Love, he’s created his most fully realized and purposeful batch of songs yet.
  7. 60
    There is no question that this is a work of devotion, even a work of love, but as a document of raw emotion, it is lacking, it feels overly considered.
