    HEALTH will still be written off as noise, but for fans, it sounds like the quartet tapped into its groove.
  2. Get Color goes by fast and leaves the listener satisfied but begging for more wonderful, eardrum punishing noise.

    Still short on humanity, true, but possessed with an alien sort of beauty. [Oct 2009, p.98]
  4. For many, Health's noisy tendencies will be a bit much, but those who aren't afraid to dig deeper will be rewarded greatly.
  5. Get Color is a hell of a tease, proving that Health is still an extraordinary band, but not always treating listeners to the full package.
  6. 70
    Guitars and synths, both shimmering and scouring (depending on the volume level), can’t quite override the sweet harmonies at the heart of 'Die Slow,' nor can the toms stop them on 'Death+' or 'We Are Water.'
  7. 56
    Get Color may not be as revelatory as its predeccessors, but its slight merits gradually ooze into the wounds it so fiendishly creates. [Fall 2009, p. 102]

    This is what youth sounds like, loud and passionate and rambling, seemingly without a higher purpose than simply "doing what feels right."This is what youth sounds like, loud and passionate and rambling, seemingly without a higher purpose than simply "doing what feels right." It's 33 minutes of dancy, punchy noise you can imagine getting sweaty to and I loved it. The last minute of "We Are Water" is most likely what inspired Rockstar to give them a call, asking if they wanted to do Max Payne 3. That minute alone is haunting as hell. Good album. Expand
