Starwalker - Very Good, Based on 3 Critics

AllMusic - 80
Based on rating 8/10

Starwalker's self-titled debut lives up to the promise of the Losers Can Win EP, as well as its members' CVs. It's no surprise that a collaboration between Air's Jean-Benoît Dunckel and Bang Gang's Bardi Jóhannsson would result in lush, lavish music, but Starwalker is also remarkably and refreshingly pop-focused: The duo saves the album's lone instrumental, the expansive "Demeter," for last. Indeed, Starwalker is often more accessible than some of Dunckel's other music outside of Air; "Losers Can Win" and "Holidays" feel like worthy successors to Darkel's lovely "At the End of the Sky" in their mix of childlike wonder and bittersweet sophistication.

Paste Magazine - 70
Based on rating 7.0/10

Listening to Starwalker is like eavesdropping on the world’s hippest cocktail party. Which, given the electro-daydream sonic pallet of its two members’ main projects (Air and Bang Gang), isn’t wholly unexpected. But with their new collaboration, Jean-Benoît Dunckel and Bardi Johannsson have taken casual cool to the next level, sinuous synths and Dunckel’s Gauloises smoke-infused vocals lofting towards the heavens.
