    There isn't quite enough to genuinely stand out from the crowd. [May 2013, p.98]

    Ultimately though, they don’t commit enough to the sonic range which they eventually bring to bear, focusing too much on middle-of-the-road indie-folk.

    The varying topics and often-indistinct lyrics miscommunicate, making this record better suited for easy listening than deep delving.

    Their fourth full-length has the band members grabbing snippets of musical influence from all over the Pitchfork-approved map. [No. 96, p.54]

    Naomi is a decent album, not a good one.

    Competent. Completely forgettable.

    Certainly, there’s a fine line in-between a record bearing cohesion and every song being a clone of the tune before it, but Naomi suffers, even if slightly so, from multiple personalities.

    On Naomi, the Cave Singers don’t really fail at anything; however, save for a couple of moments, they don’t offer up anything all that memorable either.
