    Arthur Beatrice running their race slow and steady has resulted in an album full of sophisticated pop.

    Given an open mind and time to unfurl, Working Out is a wholly absorbing record. [Mar 2014, p.107]

    It's nothing we haven't heard before, but it's delightfully packaged, making it feel unique in its own way.

    It’s not a perfect album--few are--but it’s definitely one that’ll have you ensnared

    There are some tracks here which are absolutely the best in their class, but it's just a shame that as a whole the collection is weighed down by moments that don't shine as bright as others.

    Working Out seems to ache for more expressive vocals, and a little less of the primness exhibited by Girardot and Sheppard.

    Creatively, Working Out doesn't cover a lot of ground, but it's really good in the little space it's carved out for itself.
