Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (6/7/01, pp.109-10) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Drums, bass and guitars move injarring cycles of hyperhowl and near-silent death march....the cumulativ eforce of muscle, imagination and immaculately wrought suspense....In another era, this would have been considered prog rock..."

Spin (1/02, p.77) - Ranked #16 in Spin's "Albums of the Year 2001" - "...Spine-crushing dynamics and the best rock howl of the year..."

Spin (10/03, p.107) - "...Their first No. 1 album is also their spaciest and most technical..."

Entertainment Weekly (5/25/01, pp.76-7) - "...It's the sound of a giant beast slowly rousing from a slumber, raising havoc, and then settling back in again. LATERALUS reasserts their strengths....leaving you admiring their principles..." - Rating: B-

Q (8/01, pp.141-2) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Extraordinary in every sense..."

Alternative Press (2/02, p.64) - Ranked #2 in AP's "25 Best Albums of 2001".

Alternative Press (7/01, p.57) - 7 out of 10 - "...A thick slab of art-rock..."

CMJ (6/4/01, p.15) - "...Staggerringly brilliant..."

Kerrang (Magazine) (p.53) - "Complex, depressing, uplifting, spiritual and arcane, LATERALUS is rock at its most epic and transcendental."

NME (Magazine) (6/2/01, p.38) - 7 out of 10 - "...Adds a little more color to their palette of chanting, drumming and high drama....They're the metal Radiohead..."
