    Ultimately, Naomi doesn’t stray too far from The Cave Singers’ previous output, but she, like any good muse, will captivate, invigorate and satiate.

    Not without fault, the album is a solid, cohesive work--and sign of The Cave Singers’ electrifying potential.

    The Cave Singers find a way to remove the corniness from a jammy folk album, instead building Naomi with honest lyrics and a soothing ramble of guitars. [Apr 2013, p.86]

    Their fourth full-length has the band members grabbing snippets of musical influence from all over the Pitchfork-approved map. [No. 96, p.54]

    Certainly, there’s a fine line in-between a record bearing cohesion and every song being a clone of the tune before it, but Naomi suffers, even if slightly so, from multiple personalities.

    There isn't quite enough to genuinely stand out from the crowd. [May 2013, p.98]
  7. Mar 4, 2013
    Ultimately though, they don’t commit enough to the sonic range which they eventually bring to bear, focusing too much on middle-of-the-road indie-folk.
