    [The first track, "Celebrate" is] a stunning start--and thankfully, the songs that follow are just as strong.

    On Season High, she's bringing a more versatile vocal treatment than ever. Always with the inimitable low range quaver, Nagano touches different ranges without a hitch. With an evolved new collection of tracks that are both hot and smart, Little Dragon has set themselves further apart.

    The band will probably never make a singularly categorizable record, but their unique balance of accessibility and creativity is a definite strength--and it shines here.

    Tracks such as Celebrate and Push lack the euphoric uplift necessary for dancefloor dominance, while the relationship angst hinted at in strobe Light comes masked behind a dreamy production gauze. When they hit the sweet spot, however, the results are sublime. [Jun 2017, p.110]

    Season High is a pleasant ride--a breezy escapade through dreamlands and ultraviolet meadows. It’s a sometimes sickly-sweet concoction that’ll leave you once or twice with the feeling of overindulgence.

    The beats toughen up with the second half bangers Strobe Light and Push, on an album that lyrically does what it says on the tin.

    There are flashes of a more invigorating band underneath, but Season High ultimately ends up the kind of record for festival attendees to pleasantly dance along to while sipping their drinks waiting for the headliner.

Sure it isn't as adventurous as their past records and it is rather spotty at times, but the unique textures and Yukimi Nagano's vocals and performance is as dynamic and awe-inspiring as ever, it's a fun listen for fans of the band Expand

    'Season High' doesn't reach as "high" expectations as their critically acclaimed 'Nabuma Rubberband' did, but it doesn't entirely disappoint.'Season High' doesn't reach as "high" expectations as their critically acclaimed 'Nabuma Rubberband' did, but it doesn't entirely disappoint. Most of the tracks have a very funk-disco-indie vibe to it, though 'Butterflies' is probably the only track that stands apart from the rest and could be said to be the best song on the album.
    Other favorites from the album include: High & Celebrate
