    Phillip and Down are on a roll from which there's no signs of them slowing down any time soon. [10 May 2014, p.52]

    From powerful riffs to heartbreaking melodies, Down IV – Part II is yet another example of Down's flawless work.

    Down IV – Part II is unlikely to shock devotees, but recent lineup changes seem to have rejuvenated the Louisiana quintet's approach, resulting in their strongest batch of material since 1995's widely adored debut album, NOLA.

    These six songs are louder, faster and heavier than the first EP. [Jun 2014, p.105]

    There's a consistency to the EP that can get lost when a band is trying to work their way toward a longer running time, so although fans might not be getting a big a dose of new Down material as they might crave, they're certainly reaping the benefits of quality over quantity.
