Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Granduciel is still more about layered textures and tight-woven phrases than he is about noodling, and anxiety still lurks under heady aural comforts, laid out in his nasal, Dylanesque vocal tones."

Spin - "It's not just that A DEEPER UNDERSTANDING is one of the best rock albums in years, but that the music itself is so expansive and enveloping that it feels like it should be everywhere."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.90) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "This is a band out ot revitalise the hoary old scarecrow of rock, stuffing it with lightning not sawdust....Exhilarating in places..."

NME (Magazine) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "These songs revel in their spaciousness, like three- minute drivetime anthems from 1986 set free from their radio edits to muck around with 2017's oddest noises for seven minutes at a time."

Paste (magazine) - "The record finds significance in odd moments, and in subtle movements of crescendo and mood, perhaps displayed best on the reverb-y dream ride 'Strangest Thing.'"
