    Overall, Clay Class gives the feeling of bridges being built and dots being connected.
  2. Their unadorned, effects-free music remains simple and straightforward, like a rock equivalent of the Dogme school of cinema.

    There is always a feeling of constructive clarification at the heart of Clay Class, and that reappraisal of the traditional sense of progress is something that is cemented by the ideology shining through the holes that Prinzhorn Dance School so artfully poke through the fourth wall.

    Even with bursts of ill-tuned twang, Prinz and Horn's harshness is centered and tame.

    Clay Class feels disappointingly stagnant. But it does offer encouraging signs that a blade of grass or two can sprout up from cracks in Prinzhorn Dance School's cold, concrete world.

    As a statement on simplicity, its' nothing they didn't say already on the first album; however, it is a more pleasing overall listening experience. [Mar 2012, p.88]

    It starts promisingly ... but 43 minutes of joyless hectoring becomes an endurance test. [Feb 2012, 110]
