Critical reception[edit]

Little Death has an average rating of 74 on[7] The album was described by NME as "perfect pop without the pretence".[3] Pitchfork gave Little Death an 8 out of 10 saying "Even if you'd be loathe [sic] to admit it to your friends, "Dry Wings", with lines like, "Time for bed/ Find a girl and go to bed/ Close your eyes/ Stars are falling from the sky," is mighty affecting-- a winking galaxy of jangled wist, sweet, staggered harmonies and a gawky, yearning sense of wonder".[4] The Guardian gave the album 3 out of 5 stars saying, "this eclecticism does make Little Death feel like the work of several different bands. No matter. There is imagination to spare here, as well as the occasional winning lyric."[1]
