    This is the sound of a band who have grown up without becoming boring. The music is straight up indie, but the honesty that drives the lyrics is unique and sets this album apart from anything this band has previously done, but also sets the bar much higher for their peers. Beautiful and refreshing.

    One of the best records of the year so far. Painfully beautiful, smart, and honest. This band has evolved into a nonconformity, no-nonsense sound that, to say the least, shows some spine.

    [Neko] Case misses Carrier, and it her. [No. 102, p.55]

    Carrier ends up being a remarkably balanced meditation on joy and loss, as well as one of the more nuanced albums in Dodos' body of work.

    It is among The Dodos’ best work--Carrier is a fitting eulogy.
