    Ultimately, Cheatahs haven't just upped the ante with Mythologies, they've created one of this year's most definitive albums and probably increased their own burden of expectation tenfold.

    A psychedelic, textured sound that's a leap forward from their already-impressive debut album.

    The record doesn’t just match the standard of their first, it surpasses it.

    In short, Mythologiesis reverent to past creative innovations, while creating a few of its own. [Dec 2015, p.104]

    Never sitting still or dwelling on their influences for too long, the third incarnation of Cheatahs in 2015 have harnessed the hyperactivity of their release schedule, channelling it into a collection of tracks that houses some of their strongest moments to date.

    Mythologies is the sound of a band who've realised their previous limitations, improved on the sounds they're most comfortable with and invited us to listen to them discovering their ability to splatter the canvas with all kinds of beautiful mess.

    Experienced as a whole, Mythologies is a satisfyingly rich tapestry woven by a band who've found their strengths and honed them accordingly.

    On Mythologies, Cheatahs expand on the surreal, otherworldly aspects of their sound, and seem to take abundant pleasure in wringing sweetness out of caustic, discordant noises.

    Cheatahs create melodic miasmas of space marimba, psych pop and crystalline drones, while lyrically teleporting around the globe.

    The further you get into Mythologies, the further off-piste Cheatahs go. [Nov 2015, p.106]

    Cheatah's emotional core is easily decipherable. [Dec 2015, p.94]

    The increased use of synths on the album shows them edging a bit towards really carving out their own style. But right now they seem content to keep mining shoegaze and non-grunge early ‘90s guitar rock.
