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

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

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

    Working Out is an apt title, as Arthur Beatrice sound a little bit like they're in the late stages of development, where momentum is sometimes mistaken for maturation, but there's little doubt that they have the tools and the talent to carve out their own niche if given the room to grow a bit further out of the very populated one they currently reside in.

    Working Out is a sophisticated sounding record, but with only a handful of standout tracks, it may not be enough.

    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.
