  1. This is CocoRosie's best long-player yet, and a sure contender for album of the year.

    CocoRosie has this fantastic ability to infuse humanity into their drum machines, and the warming result carries The Adventures to marvelous heights. [Apr 2007, p.102]
  3. This album provides a gateway to a spine-tingling and thought-provoking experience which more than compensates for the intermittent poor man's Bjork moments.
  4. What really makes Ghosthorse and Stillborn worthy of a jump for joy is CocoRosie’s transformation from self-conscious oddity into an actual songwriting force.
  5. Adventures is a record that is just as quirky as it is brilliant.
  6. The Adventures of Ghosthorse and Stillborn's densely packed sounds and ideas are a lot to process, but they're what makes this album rewarding on repeated listens.

    This is a larger-sounding, less homespun set than thte sisters' previous two albums. [May 2007, p.102]

    Seduces with a mixture of whimsical beauty and compelling mystery. [Jun 2007, p.101]
  9. There is a childishness about CocoRosie's sound, but rather than a tame tweeness, it's the dark perversity of a genuinely infantile imagination.

    CocoRosie is consistantly stunning and each one of their albums has been among itst year's best. The Sierra sisters have honed in on CocoRosie is consistantly stunning and each one of their albums has been among itst year's best. The Sierra sisters have honed in on their strenghts and crafted a very cohessiive record that delves further into their experimental production methods and poignat charm. A lot of people throw out 10's on the metacritic user circuit like it's nothing, but I don't give take perfect scores lightly. This is very deserving of a perfect score. Full Review »
