    Daybreaker is a great album. It'll go down as one of Architects' finest works.

    Daybreaker is their best yet. [Jul 2012, p.90]
  5. Forging a path not quite dismissing their last batch of cuts, Architects' drive to re-assert their heavier influences makes for a back-and-forth slug match that draws on a little too long at points – yet is still memorable enough to keep you coming back for the highlights.

    Daybreaker sounds stripped down, not a step up.

    A return to heavy, complex and vicious riffing, though Sam Carter's sporadically tuneful vocals still offer respite. [Jun 2012, p.100]
