    Internal Logic pits fractious churn and friction against head-spinning harmonies, and here's the surprise, everybody wins.

    While the dotty cant of Mahon's guitar playing skews in Sleater-Kinney's direction, Internal Logic is largely an exhibition of the dramatic power of restraint.

    The songs on Internal Logic are like triple-exposed photographs, their nebulous, hazy qualities occasionally belying the acute skill with which they've been composed.

    Mostly, though, the record shows off Grass Widow's continued ability to hone their own style.

    Internal Logic is a well-constructed album, more punk than post-, stronger in its ideas, and a welcome departure from so-called "love" songs prevalent in modern bands inspired by the early 60s. It's a strong statement from the band and a treat for those who revel in such influences.

    With spot-on production and their most engaging material yet, Grass Widow come into their own on Internal Logic, and have given themselves enough room to grow into something more vivid and lasting than ever before.
  7. 50
    The nagging flaw of Internal Logic is that it's a mirror image of the band's previous outings.
