    Guider invites listeners' touch with its seductively rounded edges, but sends them away with skinned fingertips.
  2. Feb 22, 2011
    Guider may be a little jagged around the edges, but it's that one-take immediacy that gives the record its legs. Observing this brand of ultra-violence is thrilling, but the action can be a bit messy at times.
  3. Feb 10, 2011
    Concise yet ambitious, Guider finds Disappears firing on all cylinders and going far beyond Lux's promise.
  4. Feb 10, 2011
    Guider is an intriguing, viscerally stirring study in contemporary post-punk that holds attention like a fox in a headlight beam.
  5. Feb 10, 2011
    Much of what lends the album distinction is the tension created between the band's bold, confident projections and the more delicate core at their center. At times, that tension can be disorienting.
  6. Feb 10, 2011
    They sound more into straight lines than catchy arcs, more into the moment than what came before.
  7. Feb 10, 2011
    The straightforward manner in which Disappears present themselves makes it easy to take the album at face value and enjoy its vibe and vigor without worrying about its place in the broader canon.
  8. Feb 10, 2011
    Listening to this album is in effect like listening to Paul McCartney's Wings-technically spot-on, catchy, but in the long run, utterly meaningless.
