May 14, 2020Grӕ is so rich in content and so vast in musicality it would be impossible to unpack everything in a single review. It is complex yet universal – comforting yet unsettling. It lives in an incorporeal realm of its own, and somehow, Sumney has gained complete and utter command over it.
May 19, 2020Moses Sumney and Mike Hadreas have made the albums of our strange quarantine season — bleak but tender, sprawling yet intricately detailed, as suffused with the need for physical contact as they are alert to its dangers and prohibitions. ... Stunning art-soul record. ... Yet as busy as the music can occasionally feel, both albums keep close track of the singers’ voices, which always merit the attention.
Aug 10, 2020For all of the purposefully oblique subject matter, the album never once feels indirect or opaque. ... His voice is multiply expressive, both in the way that a singer/songwriter’s voice in its lyrical accent would be, and in the way that someone like Daniel Lopatin’s production would expectedly turn a voice into beautiful putty.
May 18, 2020It’s hard to imagine many of its songs being performed onstage, even before the pandemic — even as it encompasses more sonic possibilities, from the orchestral to the surreal. ... Sumney doesn’t have to explain himself in prose. His songs do it even better.
The WireJul 14, 2020He knows that being the most complete version of himself requires lifelong searching – græ never fails to feel like such a journey. [Aug 2020, p.63]

Is it the strong harmonies? Or maybe the focused production that unearths what it intends for you to feel. I've got it now,it's moses. This album is the best picture of him we've ever received. It explores the vast parts of him from his relationship with masculinity and femininity or with blackness and isolation. The key to this album is the little pieces such as the samles,interludes,base strum in cut me or violins in bles me. Everything is grand like a performance. Not a single moment is wasted in this album. A serious improvement on the meandering debut. Favourites:cut me,bless me,me in 20yrs,two dogs… Expand
