  1. Human Animal comes off as a less directly brutal assault than its predecessor. It sounds a hell of a lot better cranked to ten, though, its contours more explicit, the sounds sharpened to a steely point.
  2. For Human Animal, Wolf Eyes have stepped back from pure violence, bringing in some of the old cinematic features while retaining pieces of the vicious nature that has served them well.
  3. When these scientists hit on the right formula of slow-burning anticipation, the bombast that follows has the profundity of a drug-induced epiphany. Previous Wolf Eyes records have struck that magic balance during individual songs or sides, but none have stretched it over an album's length like Human Animal.
  4. As close to perfect as a noise album can be.
  5. 74
    The word "unnerving" doesn't account for the range of senses that get pulled down into this abyss. [#22, p.98]
  6. An album at once tighter and more terrifying than anything they’ve yet released.
  7. 40
    Uneven. [#73, p.112]
