    This record will reward repeat spins generously.
  2. It might take a moment to sink in, but the return of Verse to both touring and recording has reaped its most challenging disc to date--leaving us with something to cherish and consider in the process.

    Bitter Clarity, Uncommon Grace makes it clear Verse are among the finest hardcore bands existing today. [Aug 2012, p.92]

    Though this record may represent a simple dusting off for Verse, a confident move towards a legitimately more mature sound would have been a more fitting return than the androgyny between past and future found on Bitter Clarity.
