    The Dodos have made a record of blistering folk-pop poetry that stands shoulder-to-shoulder with Visiter.

    Lyrics like the closer's "No more listening today" and "No one left here today" may apply to some returning fans, but the invigorated approach to production, arrangements, and, in many cases, performances makes for a still highly listenable set that's at least as likely to excite as to challenge.

    If this is what a midlife crisis sounds like--vital, strange, excited, intelligent, and wise--then, with minor reservations, bring it on.

    The only other hiccups are a couple of occasions when the synth lines get a little too rambunctious for their own good, bordering almost on comic. These blips aside, Certainty Waves is inventive, uplifting and fun, with something new to be discovered on every listen: an excellent entry into the Dodos’ discography.

    They've proved here that they're more than capable of escaping from, or expanding on, that familiar sound. [Dec 2018, p.24]

    Visiter stands out within their consistently enjoyable catalog for being the least consistent and most surprising—an unalloyed mix of timely African polyrhythms and freak-folk wooliness, bowl-passing ruminations on the existence of God and one-minute shrugs about getting dumped.
