    The album is called I Want You To Destroy Me and all it wants to do is live.

    There are certainly moments that feel like filler, but there’s much to like about Ghost Outfit. I Want You To Destroy Me is not life-changing or revelatory but it is a solid offering and occasionally provides the odd knockout blow of a song.

    It's quite brilliant and perfectly flawed: the sort of album you don't mind getting run over whilst listening to.

    I Want You to Destroy Me is solid as far as debuts go, though it offers the all-too-common letdown of hearing music that’s superficially loud and aggressive, yet feels like it’s doing so little to actually stand out.

    You may well be charmed by Ghost Outfit’s acidic battery; but there’s so much going on, you may have trouble remembering how their songs go.

    It's a frustratingly inconsistent affair. [Aug 2013, p.97]
