OOR (music magazine, The Netherlands):
After its debut album ‘We Should Have Been Stars’, Mist has developed in exactly the right direction. Searching for beautifully arranged songs without a note too many, on Bye Bye the band shows a lot of capacity. Melodically and lyricwise very strong, Mist excels in 14 songs, with a perfectly balanced instrumentation, where there is even room for surprising musical elements and warm guest vocals.

NRC HANDELSBLAD (main daily newspaper The Netherlands):
Music as fragile as a soap bubble, as austere as a nun and as laborious as lace. Wasn't there anybody during those recordings who wanted to bash on his guitar, bang the drums or just yell? Apparently not. So much the better, because thanks to this unanimity, we can enjoy Bye Bye , the second album of the Dutch band Mist.

EL PAIS (main daily newspaper Spain)
Melancolic exorcism from Amsterdam. On this honourable second work Bye Bye, Mist deepens its characteristic dreampop-style: intimate melodies, beautiful textures of sound, stunning string arrangements and a velvety voice. Great, melancholic exorcism from Amsterdam.

Foutraque. com (France. Internet Music Magazine)
Rick Treffers is an elegant songwriter, a dandy of his time, who plays with words as he does with his favourite instruments: guitar, keyboards and sampler. Songs such as Only for a Moment, Hips of the Year, Heart Surgery, Relapse in Time or Love Delay, now already sound like real classics.

Digg.be (Belgium. Internet Music Magazine).
14 addicting songs, not one too many and all of the same high quality standard. Without sounding lo-fi (the production is sober, but brilliant), Mist holds the view of 'less is more'. This unique band deserves it to be a lot more famous.

ALOHA (music magazine, The Netherlands):
With Bye Bye, Mist renders a great service to themselves and to Dutch rock music in general. The balance between small and majestic is beautiful. It gives an international grandeur to the album.
