    A brief Crack of Light sees Northern Irish noise rock trio Therapy? delve further the rabbit hole to deliver a potentially game-changing opus. [Mar 2012, p.107]

    Therapy? have always exuded a commercial undercurrent and it's that ingredient that makes them compelling - equally now as then.

    This 10-track effort is rammed with classic moments. [28 Jan 2012, p.53]

    A Brief Crack of Light shows signs that Therapy? are capable of restoring their former glories, but its overall uncompromising attitude suggests they'll continue to remain a cult moshpit-inducing force for now.

    Even after 20-plus years, the band still has a lot of snap and energy, and that feeling permeates most of this album.

    It's a great shame that this album's component parts don't raise the whole above 'nice to know they're still around' status.
