    There’s a zip and kick to it, with big melodies (huge in the case of ‘Blk Stallion’) and clever turns of pace.

    With the track order shuffled entirely, it almost plays like a greatest hits album: Closer examination reveals cohesive new context for the collection, one that's more satisfying than anything we've heard from the trio before. [Mar 2014, p.88]

    A very accomplished, multifaceted, genre-dodging outing. [8 Feb 2014, p.52]

    ††† is a solid effort that stands on its own merit rather than simply cruising on the cultural cache of its members.

    The record is overlong and the arrangements are a bit too familiar. Still, these brooding tracks are compelling as they merge into a coherent whole.

    It meets its pre-release hype head on, and comes away the winner.

    While ††† may be on the same scale as Deftones, they’re not a replacement, and it stands to reason that Moreno can ascend to the heights of their previous work. But on †††, it’s like he never had wings.

    im a massive deftones fan and i have listen to this album around ten times now and im in love with it, what crosses is really to me is just all the slow songs you hear on a deftones album add a little pop and electronic to it and you have crosses and i love it Expand

    This album deserves between eight and nine,I'd love to give it a solid nine,but there are a bit too many fillers (Though what's a filler for me may be a great track for someone else). Anyways, this is,in my opinion, best album release since Moby's Innocents.
    Also, if you haven't heard it already, you simply must check out Frontiers and Bermuda Locket, for me easily the best from this album.

    http://bit.ly/1eAMw18 This is a great debut album that could easily have been better but still hits the mark just fine. With the Deftones on hiatus I will happily listen to any music Crosses release. Expand

    Crosses' debut LP is a nicely honed record. Good vocals and harmonies, and elements of industrial rock music here. I found it some what similar to early Nine Inch Nails and obviously Deftones in a way. Overall it's decent, but not incredibly worthwhile or meaningful. Expand
