    The Angels are masters at sounding simultaneously cool as a block of ice and hot as hellfire, but the cunning pop melodies are the real key to this album's success.

    The Black Angels don’t meander or mince words, and Indigo Meadow is a testament to that ideology.

    The album is a disjointed trip but a trip nonetheless, and few can take listeners on a wandering journey better than The Black Angels.

    Produced by John Congleton, the album bridges the quartet's trademark dark reverberations with the fun-house psych of 2010 breakthrough Phosphene Dream, only with more studio effects than all four sides of The Beatles and an emphasis on the Doors' Soft Parade-era organ.

    Indigo Meadow is an assured, exciting piece of work.
