  • Summary: This is the first album in over 12 years for the Sacramento rock band who is cited as an influence by such bands as Thursday and Blink 182.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 6 out of 7
  2. Negative: 0 out of 7
  1. It truly does feel as if they've been holding this emotion back since the day they parted and now unleashing everything in an explosion of creative energy, delivering a magnificent record that while fresh and exciting, could only be the work of far. [Jun 2010, p.102]
  2. Truth be told, it never feels completely on-target, however it's hardly inept - just a touch disjointed. For every minor imperfection, listeners are rewarded with boosts of adrenaline from the bludgeoning opening track "Deafening" and breakneck "Dear Enemy."
  3. At Night We Live represents an older, slightly sleazier, but still poetically earnest far. [May/Jun 2010, p.98]
  4. At Night We Live is refreshing. Far are heavy, but without sounding like a generic rock band, poppy yet not cheesy, and proud to show they are back.
  5. At Night We Live is the best and the most confident album of their two-part career. It is also, admittedly, more commercial-sounding, but there's no shame in that if it's done with integrity, dignity and passion.
  6. Fans of Far will be able to appreciate At Night We Live as a further evolution of Water & Solutions, but new listeners will have a hard time finding a fresh experience.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. this album is really powerful and awesome. from start to finish it is f***king stunning. I love the songs "Deafening", "At night we Live". But "pony" was the odd one out, with one weird repeating riff. Overall its a f***king awesome album. Expand
