    Conduit may not be an album to please those who fell in love with Tales... but for anyone pining for a return to Funeral For A friend's earliest EPs, it's very exciting. [2 Feb 2013, p.53]

    Fuelled by more than a decade of experience, Conduit sees Funeral For A Friend unleash an excitingly fresh attitude resulting in a record that could so easily be mistaken for an LP released by a band over a decade their junior.

    They really proved that they're a conduit for great music and a band that's chomping at the bit to explore and vary their style.

    This is their best album for years.

    Conduit proves that they still have that magic, albeit in a more hit-and-miss manner.

    [The album] is their best in years, hitting upon just the right combination of melody, thrash, and hooks.

    It ends with a breakdown and is littered with weighty riffs. However, these aren't forced or the focus of the band's sound, instead complementing the incredibly polished rock.

    At times, Conduit feels like a step backward for Funeral for a Friend, but that's because, well, it is. Fortunately, the album is solid enough to prove that every so often a little de-evolution is just what a band needs, and that it's entirely possible to head into the future while looking toward the past.

    Ultimately, Conduit is a fair step down from the resurgence that was Welcome Home Armageddon. But having said that, it remains a solid addition to their discography.
