82% Paste Magazine On Amen Dunes' new album Freedom, McMahon finally shows himself fully, and the results are both charmingly raw and uncommonly lovely.
80% Soundblab Damon McMahon, the brainchild behind Amen Dunes, loaded his plate with some heady topics on Amen Dunes’ latest, Freedom.
80% No Ripcord McMahon, who goes by the moniker Amen Dunes, tucked his sensitive songwriting in sheets of decadent noise.
80% The Firenote Every record in Amen Dunes discography has been stronger than the one before and Freedom keeps the trend going as it is Damon McMahon’s finest work to date.
75% The 405 Freedom is the sole word Damon McMahon chose to summate his most recent opus underneath the mask of Amen Dunes.
74% GIGsoup Given this, Amen Dunes rewards prolonged engagement with the album; audiences may find their attention lazily drifting between McMahon‘s voice and session player Gus Seyffert‘s (Beck, Bedouine) propulsive basslines.

60% The Guardian Songs such as Believe carry on the affinity Amen Dunes’ older music had with early Spiritualized or Mazzy Star.
60% Tiny Mixtapes Recently, albums dealing with the experience of grief — in particular, Mount Eerie, but also, for example, Japanese Breakfast — have been prominent on the cultural landscape.
