  1. I think it’s safe to say that Weber is putting his strengths into fine use and, with Black Noise, it’s utterly fantastic.
  2. 95
    The third full-length from Hendrick Weber maintains the high quality of previous efforts while pushing certain elements of his shoegaze-y, minimal-inspired techno sound further.
  3. Black Noise manages to navigate the tightrope of expectation and creative vision with aplomb. It’s rich and meaty, the kind of album you can really get to know over a long period of time.
  4. This is a special album, make no doubt about it, casting its spell as it makes both a moving memorial and an example of raw talent. If techno with a soul is what you're after, then look no further than this.
  5. At 70 minutes, Black Noise is a big, dense listen but also the kind of album that rewards investment.
