Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- 'Album opener "The Adults Are Talking' chases the beat from Joe Jackson's `Steppin' Out" into a glistening super-structure of latticed riff doodles and crisp micro-leads..." Entertainment Weekly - "ABNORMAL offers something even better, possibly, than reckless youth: rock stars finally old enough to truly miss those good old days -- and wise enough now, too, to give us the soundtrack these strange new times deserve." -- Grade: A- Uncut - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "There's a gentle drift from the jaunty into the kind of mid-paced guitar brooding we find nearer the close with 'Not The Same Anymore'. Here Casablancas adds the weight if not the wisdom of experience to the band's nighttime patrols." Billboard - "[T]he NYC band's signature melodies always strike the right chord, while Casablancas' breezy falsetto still proves to be a much-needed exhale amid dark times." NME (Magazine) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[W]hile the album explores a few new directions, it's still often fairly recognisable. The best stuff sounds familiar -- few people ever have, or ever will, write a better riff than that of `Last Nite'..." Paste (magazine) - "[Including] singles, "At the Door" and "Bad Decisions," with the former veering into the electro-pop of The Voidz and late Strokes material and even melancholy new wave, and the latter recalling the anthemic, stylish rock of their first two albums." Pitchfork (Website) - "Casablancas' falsetto has improved. What once felt like a novelty actually leads to some striking moments." Clash (Magazine) - "[T]his project plays with influences, creating an absorbing space where elements of `80s electro-pop, post-punk and Krautrock come together."
