  1. A magnificent return to the band's brutal, almost hardcore punkish, roots.
  2. Alternative Press

    Green's heightened tunefulness along with the broadened emotional resonance that results should enable this band to relate more to an enlarged fanbase... [#154, p.63]
  3. 70
    Though not as stellar as such past Max-era classics as Chaos A.D. or Roots, Nation is another worthy set of brutally dense, hardcore-tinged metal.
  4. 'Nation' is not bad - it's taut and tense and if you buy it quick you'll get to hear their logic-defying cover of Bauhaus' 'Bela Lugosi's Dead'. But it's hard to reconcile 'Nation''s obsession with the scourge of globalisation with Sepultura's conversion from third world pioneers to just another angry hardcore band.
  5. A series of hard-rockin', tight tunes...
  6. Contains a clutch of crowd-pleasingly brutal anthems...

    Nation by Sepultura. A german review.
    Das erste Album mit Derrick Green nach dem Weggang von Max Cavalera. Kann leider nicht an die Vorgänger anknüpfen. Greens Meisterwerke mit Dante XXI und Kairos sollen noch kommen.
    Nicht schlecht, nicht mehr, nicht weniger: 5/10
