Can we say “critically celebrated”?

Arcade’s Who’s Most Lost album has pleased NZ’s critics, which is of course a very nice thing indeed:

“Startlingly beautiful” – Nick Bollinger, NZ Listener
“Existential bubblegum… irresistible” – William Dart, The Critics Chair, Radio NZ Concert
“Each song suspended in a distinctively textured sonic space and richly embroidered with detail” – Grant Smithies, NZ Herald
“Quietly beguiling” – Graham Reid,elsewhere.co.nz
“An album for those with a more inquisitive nature. But, should you set out upon this journey you will be richly rewarded” – Michael Flynn, NZ Musician

My favourite comment is from Nick Bollinger, which might just become our aspirational mantra: “what Autechre would sound like if they played folk music” (NZ Listener, March 10 2011).
