‘A skewed but alluring new pop persona’ 4/5 – MOJO

‘Anthemic legends turn super-ambient rock troupers’ 7/10 – Classic Rock

‘While subtle, this album captures the evolution of a band in their element once more.’ 8/10 – Clash

‘A thing of glacial beauty’ – The Quietus 

‘The Ultra Vivid Lament thrives in its unpredictability.’ 7/10 – The Line of Best Fit
