    Kingdoms In Colour maintains its atmosphere mainly through its use of hypnotic rhythms and light, primary colour trippiness. It could well be the perfect end-of-summer soundtrack. [Oct 2018, p.112]

    A major step up from their earlier material, Kingdoms in Colour is where Maribou State truly come into their own.

It's full of amazing melodies, and despite the stylistic consistency of the songs, there's something new in each one. When you feel like you've just heard the best track from the album, there comes the next one and makes you rethink your previous feeling. I am emphasizing FEELING, because it's all about feeling. So I have to say I am still in love with it after almost a year of listening. Expand

Their music never disappoints. The soft, deep, flowing instrumentals are a trademark. Kingdoms in Colour is a continuation of this style and is a satisfying, calm album. It really is colourful. Expand
