  1. Black Dice still belong in the DIY basement space but with Load Blown they’ve made their most accessible album yet.
  2. For those looking for a bit of an adventure, this new music is surprisingly accessible.
  3. Load Blown is stunning. It engulfs. While sacrificing little if anything to compositional templates, the record is remarkable listenable.
  4. Load Blown does more than enough to keep "very" and "awfully," respectively, in the mix.
  5. Load Blown is damaged as a whole, even despite its overwhelming internal coherence that makes for few surprises along the way.
  6. The Brooklyn trio have delivered an impressively bonkers set comprising three EPs. [Nov 2007, p.134]
  7. There are glimmers of loveliness in the industrial-calypsos of 'Drool' and 'Bananas,' but that just makes the wilful awkwardness all the more frustrating.
