The Word On: Little Dragon, Ritual Union

The Independent Culture

"With no shortage of charm, the band should ease their way into many an audience's affections... This band's gradual edging over the precipice of mainstream acceptance has been richly deserved; now, everyone should hear this dragon roar."

"Ultimately the effort is mighty, and Little Dragon is still clearly at the top of the electro R&B pile. But 'Ritual Union' is a mixed bag, its feet uncomfortably divided between the dance floor and the couch."

"An imaginative album of contrasts loaded with subtleties and potentially alienating nuances that necessitate a long-term commitment... Little Dragon may be on the verge of a more mainstream stardom, but with 'Ritual Union', the band forges its own path and does not take the easy way out." onethirtybpm. com
