    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.

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

    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.

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

    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.

    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.
