    Regardless of where you place them categorically, Malachai are deeply entertaining and Beyond Ugly shows that one more dip into the well was indeed a good move for the band.

    Though perhaps not as unique or groundbreaking as Ugly Side of Love, Beyond Ugly is still a pretty fabulous record by a band mostly alone in a top-shelf niche.

    This third full-length is enjoyable as a standalone too, but probably more so with the added context.

    Malachai have made some good listening choice even if this has not translated into a wholly successful listening experience.

    Beyond often rings with the bumbling awkwardness of a band taking itself too seriously for the first time. [No. 108, p.55]
