    Guider invites listeners' touch with its seductively rounded edges, but sends them away with skinned fingertips.

    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.

    Concise yet ambitious, Guider finds Disappears firing on all cylinders and going far beyond Lux's promise.

    Guider is an intriguing, viscerally stirring study in contemporary post-punk that holds attention like a fox in a headlight beam.

    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.

    They sound more into straight lines than catchy arcs, more into the moment than what came before.
