  • Summary: The electronica duo of Andrew Weatherall and Keith Tenniswood return with 12 new tracks, featuring both vocals (from Weatherall) and live instrumentation (from Tenniswood) and departing significantly from the techno of past albums.

    The duo have crafted a disc that grafts underground rawness (garage rock, no wave, electro, classic '80s goth) to their taut dance grooves. [Sep 2004, p.140]
  2. Easily their most cohesive and satisfying full-length to date, Chapel shows that Weatherall still has a few tricks up his sleeve and isn’t afraid to use them.
  3. Shards of Joy Division guitar crisscross punk-funk basslines and mournful electro shivers.
  4. Even if the sound they pursue here is just a detour, its seamless and creative fusion of rock and electronic idioms deserves respect.
  5. Uncut

    This is certainly the pair's most immediate record. It's also their least appealing. [Jun 2004, p.91]
  6. Mojo

    A welcome departure. [Jun 2004, p.114]
  7. For most of the album I'm stuck thinking of wincing comparisons to better music that sounds like this.
