    Era is another solid album; with the laser-like focus Disappears have, it's hard to imagine them delivering anything less.

    Era is the sort of record you can just sink into.

    Era showcases all the work Disappears have done cutting and splicing and regathering their sound together to regain their identity. It’s still lurking in the shadows, but finally, it's there.

    Living in any city brings its share of alienation. Disappears render the loneliness in Chicago’s orange smog and shattered buildings.
  5. 60
    Era joins the other three albums as a missed opportunity.

    Intentionally dreary, it could still benefit from a spark in the dark.

    The prevalent mood is somewhat dour, and the loss of Steve Shelley blunts some of the dynamism in Disappears' dogged repetitions. [Nov 2013, p.69]
