    By stepping back and taking stock, Pelican has reconnected with what made it a pioneer in the first place: force, vision, and soul.

    It seems the change in membership has reinvigorated them, providing their songs with a sense of stability that shines through on an album that easily ranks as some of the band's most exciting work in recent years.

    Other post-metal bands may be getting more attention right now, but few are doing it better than Pelican. [Nov 2013, p.90]

    Though not as resonant as Pelican’s material that better blended their two strengths, Forever Becoming nonetheless carries both.

    Forever Becoming doesn't offer any dramatic shifts in their sound. [Aug-Sep 2013, p.93]

    A great deal of these tracks, once they get into their groove, are content to get stuck in it, which is a big problem considering how the chord progressions they’re using don’t feel like something that should be in the front of the mix.
