Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 6 out of 7
  2. Negative: 0 out of 7
  1. Suffice it to say, Milky Ways covers more territory than a dance album of its ilk rightfully should, though it never really clings to that designation in the first place and struggles to fit into any sensible line of kin.
  2. It takes a while to cohere, but ultimately the depth as well as the breadth of Joakim's ideas carry the album; indeed, its finest--moments are its most shape-shiftingly ambitious ones.
  3. 80
    Milky Ways is a simple yet multilayered album that fires on all cylinders.
  4. It sounds like this house-cat has finally found his true calling.
  5. 70
    Milky Ways is a clear upgrade, with better songwriting lending structure to his adventurous genre-hopping.
  6. To those without the stomach for Joakim's waywardness, Milky Ways will often sound as much during the course of a listen. For those who are feeling adventurous but forgiving of the same, Joakim is a worthy companion.
  7. Q Magazine
    A genuinely quirky record. [Oct 2009, p.112]
