    This is a well-made album full of catchy rhythms, upbeat pop songs. Caroline has a powerful voice in this album and her vocals help give each song a special mood. It is definitely an album worth listening to and it is one of the better albums of this year so far.

    After listen it more than 6 times, it has become one of my favorites records of this months. They've created a peculiar piece of pop, that mixes commercial sounds with experimental arrangements, producing a nice result. All the songs has good moments that reinforce the general quality. Some people may not like it, but it's a matter of taste.

    Chairlift craft an accessible, strange pop record. "Something" shows off Chairlift's eccentricities, but also a pure original, well written album that's very distinct opposed to any other record. "I Belong In Your Arms" is the highlight track for me.

    All In All, Chairlift are a great pop band and "Something" has way more great tracks than just okay songs. B+

    The Brooklyn duo returns with material that stays true to its trademark song structure but turns the musicality up considerably.

    The music is as compelling and versatile as Polachek's voice. [Mar 2012, p. 97]

    Something is a huge leap of cohesive maturity.
