    Make the most of dead Son Rising, as its diversity is its strength. [Nov 2011, p.103]

    [A] satisfying compilation with its lugubrious and luxurious electronic introspection created by an artist once again near the height of his powers.

    Dead Son Rising is a dark experimental work that reminds us why Trent Reznor is an obvious fan.

    Numan might not have the most up-to-date operating system, but the old cyborg is still good for a couple of kicks.

    Dead Son Rising is neither terrible nor extraordinary.
  6. A collection of offcuts revamped in the industrial style that has characterised his recent work--isn't [a latter-day masterpiece that will spread his appeal beyond his hyper-devoted fanbase].

    It almost hurts to pan this album but probably not as much as listening to the whole thing a fourth time.
