Reception[edit]

KCRW said of the album "They have attacked it with gusto on Voyeur, adding dynamic touches to their rock-solid core of songwriting" and that "Overall the album is a satisfying package from start to finish".

Mark Jenkins of the Washington Post reviewed the album, "Channeling British glam-pop as only a Los Angeles band can, Saint Motel makes chic and sprightly music with hints of ironic malevolence."[1] He also noted, "At times, the music can be almost too ecstatic, threatening to leave the listener behind."[2][3]
