4.5 stars “Killer, indeed.” – The Music 4 stars “Fitzroy’s own world-beating rock’n’soul man stages a winning neo-soul reinvention.” – Rolling Stone “To become exceptional, all artists must learn to see the world through others’ eyes while simultaneously becoming more perspicacious and honest about themselves. Several track on Killer confirm Dan Sultan (…) has arrived there.” – The Age “…his records have showcased one of Australia’s strongest and most essential voices. Killer is its greatest exhibition yet.” – Stack “Killer is full of great songs. It gives more bang for buck than any Dan Sultan record so far, and the fact that it is an evolution in his sound is just a welcome bonus.’ – Double J
Killer marks Sultan’s second time in the ARIA top 5 – his last album Blackbird debuted at #4 and earned the Melbourne artist the Best Rock Album accolade at the ARIA Awards in 2014.
