UncutJun 28, 2017The visual-album version is the trippiest means of experiencing Ernest Greene's third full-length under his Washed Out moniker. Yet the music is sufficiently enthralling on its own. [Aug 2017, p.38]
Jul 7, 2017Actually, the best way to experience what Mister Mellow is really about is to give the visual component of the album a go first. Yes, the audio more than stands up on its own, but the artwork courtesy a variety of incredibly talented artists really does a more comprehensive job of fleshing out Greene’s overall vision.
Jun 28, 2017They're disorienting, at times disturbing and very abstract, which basically makes it the perfect visual representation of the album. The record feels like it's falling apart at times, but there's beauty in its disarray--like its accompanying videos, it's hard to look away.
Jun 29, 2017Truly, it all feels right on Mister Mellow, which is why it doesn’t leave much of an impression. Even if Mister Mellow asked more of Greene than any prior Washed Out album, it lacks the artistic ambition and tension that made his work endure beyond a blurry moment in the sun.
Q MagazineJul 6, 2017Get Lost is a deliberate break with the woozy synths of his earlier work. The rest of the LP doesn't quite follow through n that adventurousness. [Aug 2017, p.112]

Jun 30, 2017Pretty much different than anything he’s ever done. The proper songs here are wonderful. “Floating By” is quite possibly the best Washed OutPretty much different than anything he’s ever done. The proper songs here are wonderful. “Floating By” is quite possibly the best Washed Out track around; however, there are too many interludes. Sure most of them are relaxing and nice, and the album flows nicely, but they’re so short. They just whiz by leaving you wanting more. I also am not a huge fan of all the random sound effects thrown in the mix. They don’t hinder the overall experience much, but it would’ve been better with them left out.
This feels more like something that would play in parts during a commercial break on MTV, especially with the visual album thing he’s got going on here.
Bottom line: it’s great, but it’s way too short for what it is. “Floating By” and “Hard to Say Goodbye” are very great standouts.… Expand
