Kimbra - The Golden Echo - Top 5 Debut!

23 August 2014 - 0 Comments

Kimbra - The Golden Echo has debuted at #5 on the country's Top 40 Albums Chart!

The stunning new album has also debuted at #2 on the Kiwi Albums Chart.

The Golden Echo is receiving high praise from critics around the globe, check out some of the quotes from reviews below:

NZ HERALD 5/5
Very much a pop album, except unlike anything else you've heard, and it's a lot of fun.

LA TIMES 3/4
A virtual layer cake of futuristic funk pop, contemporary R&B and maximalist Top 40 music slathered with the purple icing of Prince, The Golden Echo swaps styles with gleeful - and at times reckless - abandon, an apt pop offering for this pattern-on-pattern cultural moment.

IDOLATOR 4/5
In a world where there's an almost ironic ambiguity in pop music, Kimbra's The Golden Echo is setting a new standard of doing whatever feels right. Keep those feels going, Kimbra.

BEYOND THE WATCH 8.5/10
It seems as if Kimbra has gone over the majority of the press' heads since she put together a record that pushes boundaries and genres that stretch music to a true original form. Kimbra's exploration as a musician is exactly what we wanted and The Golden Echo is spectacular.

EXCLAIM! 8/10
Her eclectic and experimental approach to music blending pop, R&B and electronica elements is an intellectually rewarding experience.

PASTE MAGAZINE
Subversive pop brilliance.

"I guess you guys aren't ready for that yet... But your kids are gonna love it."
