    Put the whole bag of tricks together and Pulled Apart By Horses have captured their own genie. [Oct 2014, p.118]

    In the midst of all this evolution, Pulled Apart By Horses are still fun, and the enthusiasm with which they pummelled through their earlier efforts is still present here.

    Reaching further and further afield from their early experimental niche sound, Pulled Apart By Horses are now more accessible than ever.

    Blood serves as evidence that the band’s decision to take their time has paid serious dividends; there’s real intelligence in the restraint that they’ve shown on the likes of “Medium Rare”, and by the time you reach closer “Golden Monument”, you realise that the entire album’s been planned with that level of conscientiousness.

    The bared teeth and balls that made PABH so loveable in the first place are still splattered all over Blood, but for the first time it sounds like they have a plan.
  6. Sadly, the promise of desert-rock heaviness is, if anything, underplayed.

    A meld of punk brio and grunge licks. [Oct 2014, p.96]
