Critical reception

At Metacritic, which assigns a weighted average score out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, G Is for Deep received an average score of 66% based on 7 reviews, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[1]

Bram E. Gieben of The Skinny gave the album 4 stars out of 5, saying, "the beats, which Dose produced, are heavily electro-influenced, with a melodic pop sheen that suits his approach to vocals on this release."[7] He said: "There's little straight-up rap on the album, but Dose's layered, breathy falsetto singing is definitely a product of incredible breath control and strict rhythmic pattern-generation."[7] Ben Cardew of NME gave the album 2.5 stars out of 5, calling it "an alien funk, in which scampering beats collide with wistful vocal lines."[5] Zach Long of Alarm said, "Doseone returns with a record that reaches in new directions while retaining all the unique characteristics that make his music unmistakable."[2]

Azeen Ghorayshi of East Bay Express named it one of the "Top Ten Albums of 2012".[12]
