    It's almost fate that they've chosen to reveal themselves to me with what is their best work to date, and also one of the most remarkable albums of this year.

    The London quintet have raised their game, with something a whole lot more classy, salvaging them from the landfill indie chute.

    Mixing classic rampant riffs and exploring newer matured sounds, Moss and Co. have crafted another hearty album that should satisfy even the hungriest of followers.

    Despite having many strong songs and a more focused approach, the Duke Spirit's third album is also their most uneven.

    Maybe they're just too solid, too classic, too... lacking in danger, but Bruiser proves they're still putting up a hell of a fight.
  6. 70
    There is plenty here to admire, leaving the feeling that this is an album to grow to love.

    If Bruiser's more straightforward rock turns mostly disappoint (one notable exception: the late-game adrenaline shot "Everybody's Under Your Spell"), the album does find the band showcasing its dynamic range in new and intriguing ways.
